What happens if interest rates increase too quickly?
100% of people found this answer helpful

Steadily increasing interest rates shouldn’t be a problem. We’re coming off of record low interest rates for a record period of time. Normalizing interest rates should be viewed as a positive development. However, interest rates that rise too quickly could be problematic.

If mortgage rates rise too quickly, it could price people out of making a home purchase. Real estate is a huge economic driver for the economy and if rates rise too quickly, it could cause a slowdown.

Small business relies heavily on access to credit to fund new investment, hiring, and payroll. Most businesses make reasonable plans to plan for future costs. If the costs (interest rates) rise too quickly, that could hurt small business.

Bonds also react negatively if rates rise too fast. Bond prices move opposite of interest rates. As rates rise, bond values decline. If they rise slowly, it isn’t much of an issue, if they rise quickly, that’s another story. I write about interest rate risk in an article called Bond Fund Basics and it goes into a bit more detail. I hope you find it helpful.

Please note that this should not be considered investment advice and is only educational in nature.

Best of luck!
