Big Shift in Fed Rate Cut Forecasts

Significant Shift in Fed Rate Cut Predictions Latest Odds

After weeks of jawboning by Fed members, stronger-than-expected inflation and other economic data, markets are still pushing back and pricing in interest rate decreases.

Even then, investors still very much believe that the Fed will lower rates in June; it's really a wash. In the meantime, the markets are almost done with this year's three rate decreases.

Many Fed policymakers gave speeches last week. There were many who leaned wait and see, some who leaned hawkish.

More importantly, economic data as a whole is still trending strongly.

The jobs report on Friday was far better than anticipated, even though wage growth did somewhat slow down in accordance with expectations. That came following the ISM manufacturing index on Monday, which showed signs of contraction for 16 months before rising beyond the break-even 50 mark. The ISM services index on Wednesday, which unexpectedly indicated slower growth, partly mitigated that.

China's economy began to revive at the same time that Europe began to show encouraging indications. These also point to higher growth and more persistent inflation, along with rising copper and crude oil prices.

Similar to late 2023, the Fed's most recent dot-pot forecast called for a median of three rate cuts at the meeting on March 20. However, it was by the smallest of amounts.
