How will markets react to a Fed hike?

While past experience suggests a Fed rate rise should be no reason for long-term investors to panic, current market conditions are creating much unease.

If the US Federal Reserve opts to hike rates around the middle of next year -- as most analysts currently expect -- investors would be best served to sell out of stocks around April and buy back in during the final quarter of 2015.

At least that’s what history tells us.
