Written by David Fabian of FMD Capital Management.     The current rise in interest rates has an eerily-similar feeling to the panic and frustration after the Fed’s surprise announcement to taper quantitative easing in 2013.  Just like then, the bond market is reacting more to the thought of a change in Fed policy and not the change itself.  Investors should always remember that the  markets are not logical, they are psychological.  So with the strong non-farm payroll numbers that were released this morning, there is renewed anticipation that the Fed will be forced to hike in October, instead of the first quarter of 2016.
