B of the Federal Reserve having increased
C that the Federal Reserve will increase
D that the Federal Reserve increases

Incorrect portion -

A of the Federal Reserve will cause an increase in - cause is a redundant word here.
B of the Federal Reserve having increased
To use expectations of .. we will need to write the sentence in passive voice
Falling unemployment numbers have raised expectations of an increase in the prime lending rate by the Federal Reserve.
C that the Federal Reserve will increase - Correct
D that the Federal Reserve increases
E that the Federal Reserve would cause an increase in - Expectation and use of 'would' together are redundant here.
