Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen may struggle later this week to convince financial markets she can steer a divided U.S. central bank to raise interest rates at least once in 2016 after it started the year with four hikes on its radar.If Yellen's Fed fails to convince Wall Street about the policy path, a rate increase could trigger financial turmoil of the sort seen in 2013, when investors were caught off guard by the central bank signaling an end to its bond-buying program.In December 2015, investors were betting on two rate increases over the coming year compared to the four signaled by the Fed.Financial markets, however, show investors see only one rate increase from now through the end of 2017 .Otherwise, investors will keep doubting future rate increases.
