It always seems a long list of smart, high paid people are trying to figure out which way rates are going to move.  For many reasons, at or close to the top of the list are bankers. One of the best ways to figure out where something is going to go is to see where has it been and why. In this presentation, we will focus on historical Prime rate, looking at who makes the decision, why and how fast Prime has moved and see what your prediction of where future Prime might go.

Needed for the live, online class:

  • Highspeed internet
  • Camera is preferable but not required
  • Speaker phone to call in to the class
