Thread: FOMC: Rate cut, rate hike, or stay the same?

    FOMC: Rate cut, rate hike, or stay the same?

    I'm going to guess the Fed will stay at current target rate. But I sooooooo want to predict a surprise rate hike based on the constantly rosy picture being painted by the mouthpieces that puts the Fed directly at odds with Trump's twitter account.

    Fed won't want to use cuts to stimulate unless things are in a decline. Economic growth is slowing but not declining. Trump wants more gas to fuel his bubble though and would like to see them cut rates. Cut rates now and what do you do if a recession hits?

    I guess they will stay the same but they might do a very small hike just to try and hurt Trump in 2020.

    Fed holds rates steady, still sees no cuts in 2019

    A divided Federal Reserve held the line on interest rates Wednesday and indicated that no cuts are coming in 2019. The decision came amid divisions over what is ahead and still leaves open the possibility that policy loosening could happen before the end of the year depending on how conditions unfold.

    The central bank expects one or two rate cuts, but not until 2020. Despite cautious wording in the post-meeting statement Wednesday, markets are still betting the Fed cuts, as soon as July.

    In a decision closely watched by financial market participants clamoring for multiple cuts, central bank officials on the Federal Open Market Committee voted 9-1 to keep the benchmark rate in a target range of 2.25% to 2.5%, where it has been since December’s controversial quarter-point increase. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard voted to reduce the rate.

    The action sets up a possible confrontation between Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and President Donald Trump, who has been pressuring the Fed to cut rates. Just Tuesday, Trump said “let’s see what he does” at the Fed meeting when asked if he still wants to demote Powell.

    The strong majority for this month’s decision contrasted with a sharp difference of opinion on what happens next.
