Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Fed Plans on Rates


The majority of Fed officials are worried that core inflation might not rebound quickly, but that isn’t going to stop them from continuing to normalize interest rates, particularly not when the unemployment rate is getting so low,” said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, per Fox Business.

Policymakers felt that another rate increase this year “was likely to be warranted,” the Fed said.

Fed Chair Janet Yellen has repeatedly acknowledged since the meeting that there is rising uncertainty on the path of inflation, which has been retreating from the Fed’s 2 percent target rate over the past few months,” said the Fox report.
