The Fed Is Expected To Cut Rates Again Later This Month

    The markets are expecting the Federal Reserve to cut interest rates again at their September 17 -18 policy meeting. “The economy is in a good place, but not without risk and uncertainty,” said New York Fed President John Williams in a speech Wednesday. “Our role is to navigate a complex and at times ambiguous outlook to keep the economy growing and strong.”

    The second quarter-point rate cut could come just two months after the Fed lowered rates in July. Investors are placing a 90% probability on a quarter-percentage-point rate cut and a 10% probability on a larger, half-point cut, according to CME Group.

    Williams said that increased uncertainty in the global markets called for “vigilance and flexibility,” while Powell cited weaker global growth, trade uncertainty, and muted inflation when he led his colleagues in July to cut interest rates to their current range between 2% and 2.25%. He called the move a midcycle adjustment, adding that it wasn’t necessarily the start of a “long cutting cycle,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

    Recently, President Donald Trump tweeted his support for zero or negative interest rates calling those at the central bank “boneheads” for not already completely devaluing the dollar. It seems like its now a race to see which fiat currency will be worth the least the fastest.

    Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari said that the central banks need to be ready to use monetary policy to combat Trump’s trade war.  In public remarks Wednesday,  Kashkari said: “Monetary policy is a poor tool to undo the harm of trade war,” though he added officials needed to be ready to use that tool anyway.

    The Wall Street Journal added that St. Louis Fed President James Bullard wants the Fed to move rates down more aggressively with a half-point move. “We have seen a big inter-meeting move in bonds. Markets are expecting a lot less inflation and a lot less growth than the Fed is,” said Mr. Bullard in an interview Wednesday. “We should take some signal” from bond markets that indicate “our rate is too high,” he said. “I’m nervous that our policy rate is above every other rate. It is not a good place for the Fed to be.”

      1. I’m also cutting my interest rate in these articles to minus 500%.

      2. not buying shit.

      3. If the FED cuts rates, Trump owns them. If they don’t they are still part of the deep state.

        This is a war.

      4. Answer this – it is a fact the federal Reserve is NOT legal and a corporation. So to further awake one – how can a nation be in debt to itself? It can’t so shows you the Federal Reserve is a foreign entity selling FIAT which is illegal. It is not American money. Read what it says on their debt notes on the top. It says Federal Reserves money. Not America.
