Will the easy money party end in September?

The Federal Reserve sounded more upbeat about the economy following its policy meeting this week, leaving the door open for an interest-rate hike as soon as September.

U.S. interest rates have remained near zero since the depths of the Global Financial Crisis in 2008. This easy-money policy, mirrored by other central banks around the world, has helped fuel a stock market rally in recent years.

Many market players are concerned that a rate hike will send markets lower.
