Everyone thought interest rates would bounce back up after the unemployment rate fell below 6%, but not so fast. The Federal Reserve is worried about the lack growth overseas and wants to keep the rates low for the time being. The latest minutes from the Federal Reserve shows that officials were concerned with exports to our frequent partners: Europe, Japan and China. Growth in these three regions have been lackluster, and combined with a stronger dollar, America's own growth is at risk.

No word as to when interest rates will go up.
