December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading lower shortly before the cash market opening. Sellers are being influenced by yesterday’s U.S. Federal Reserve’s interest rate and monetary policy decisions. The Fed decided to pass on a rate hike at this meeting, however, it did maintain its hawkish stance toward future rate hikes. The fear of rapidly rising rates is one of the main reasons for last month’s steep sell-off and heightened volatility.
