interest rate meeting
After the stock market crashes in both the US and Europe on Tuesday, everyone’s eyes are focused on Wednesday’s interest rate meeting with the US Federal Reserve. Given the high inflation, the market is preparing itself to raise interest rates.
The most important event of the day will undoubtedly be the Federal Reserve’s interest rate meeting. It is clear on the cards that the central bank will adopt a more “harder” tone in discussing inflation, wrote Knut A. Magnussen in DNB Markets Morning Report.
At the press conference, US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell will outline US Federal Reserve (Fed) plans to reduce purchases of US securities.
Waiting for double downsizing
Since the outbreak of the epidemic, the US Federal Reserve has supported the purchase of government bonds for 120 billion per month, but it was recently reduced by 15 billion per month. DNB’s Magnussen, like the market, believes it will be cut by another 15 billion from January.
The reduction in the volume of securities purchases is likely to double from 15 to 30 billion dollars per month, which means that the process will be completed by the end of March. The dot graph, which shows the interest rate expectations of the representatives, is likely to be significantly raised. He wrote that the average may now show three increases in 2022, roughly in line with market prices, and another four increases in 2023.
The SEB also wrote in a morning update that they also expect the US Federal Reserve to increase the cuts to $30 billion per month.
However, Handelsbanken wrote in his morning report that it would be more exciting to see how quickly members envisage raising interest rates, in order to bring inflation down toward the target.
So far, members have been split between two or three more increases in 2023. There is a risk that these interest rate expectations will be revised upward as well. If forecasts were revised upwards to roughly four increments, it would be overall more hawkish than the market appears to be pricing today.
