The Fed has increased its benchmark rate dramatically since spring. It will increase it by 0.75 percent next week, before possibly returning to lower rates in December.

Slowing global growth has had a negative impact on stocks and oil prices. China stocks plunged Monday after Xi Jinping won his third term. This pressured a number American companies with operations in China.
