Monday Market Movement – All Quiet Ahead of the Fed Meeting

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Fed's New Dot PlotFed meeting Wednesday.

Until then, nothing is likely to happen and, after that, anything can happen.  There are currently rumors that the Fed may begin to gear their language to being to anticipate a rate hike sooner than later – due to recent data that has pointed to rampant inflation.  Sooner, of course, would be next year anyway, as the March “Dot Plots” didn’t indicate any movement by the Fed through 2023 but the March Fed Data pedicted consumer prices rising 2.4% for the year and, after a 5% Q2, they’d have to flall by more than 1% in Q3 and Q4 for that to be right and, if that happened – we’d be in a recession

Fed officials’ individual March projections, charted in their dot-plot, showed all 18 policy makers expected to leave interest rates unchanged through this year. Four expected to start lifting rates next year, and seven projected that rates would be higher by the end of 2023.  The new dot-plot coming Wednesday should show more individuals expect to raise rates in 2022 or 2023. A June survey of 127 market participants by MacroPolicy Perspectives LLC showed 68% of respondents expecting at least one rate increase in 2023. 

So, EITHER the Fed has to admit that inflation is running away and they need to tighten to control it OR the Fed needs to predict a Recession in the 2nd half of the year – what’s it going to be?  Not only has Inflation soared since then, as the economy has rebounded much faster than expected, but businesses have struggled to hire workers and shortages of key materials have wreaked havoc on supply chains.  

T.?ain P? ?P on Twitter: Signs of surging inflation have emerged faster than the Fed anticipated as recently as its April policy meeting. Fed officials haven’t publicly commented on the May inflation report because it was released Thursday during their self-imposed blackout period, when they refrain from speaking publicly on monetary policy ahead of their meeting.  Before the blackout period began on June 5, officials repeatedly said they expected this year’s inflation surge to prove “transitory.

We have some useful data…
