Fed Keeps Rates Unchanged, But 3 Cuts Expected This Year

By: Movement Team
March 22, 2024
The pivotal event of the week revolved around Wednesday's March FOMC meeting. As anticipated, the Federal Reserve kept rates unchanged, yet the unveiling of their updated SEP (Summary of Economic Projections) provided intriguing insights. Notably, they revised their GDP forecast for 2024 upwards, lowered the unemployment rate projection, and raised the Core PCE forecast (PCE being the Fed's preferred inflation index). Concurrently, they maintained their outlook of executing three rate cuts amounting to 75 basis points by year-end. So the economy is strong, inflation is a little sticky, yet the Fed is still looking to cut. They clearly are inclined to ease financial conditions, with a willingness to allow inflation to reach the 2.00% target over time. The lingering query remains: when will the rate cuts commence?
