The Federal Reserve (Fed) is widely expected to raise rates on Wednesday 13 June, which would be the second hike this year after March, and the seventh hike since the central bank began its upward climb in December 2015.
A lift in June will raise the Fed’s target interest rate to between 1.75% and 2%, in line with both its inflation target and the most recent data on the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation, the personal consumption expenditure (PCE) deflator, which came in at 1.8% for April. Lyn Graham-Taylor, fixed income strategist at Rabobankn, says the main interest in the market is around the dot plot and the Fed’s economic projections. He says that if the market moves to expect three more rate hikes from the Fed this year in light of Wednesday’s decision, there could be a reaction from the US markets.
