The Fed could have a surpriseWall Street is wondering whether there will be three or four interest rate hikes this year.

4 Fed rate hikes could have aAlex Wong/Getty Inflation suddenly looks like it could be making a comeback, and a very loose fiscal policy could amplify that. Many Wall Street commenters and even some Fed members now think the... central bank could raise interest rates more quickly than expected. That could have a huge impact on the housing market if mortgage rates quickly rise. It didn’t take long for rate-hike expectations to be jostled further by last week’s “monster” two-year budget bill that Congress passed with its usual gyrations, including a government mini-shutdown, and that Trump signed into law on Friday. The bill increases spending caps by $300 billion over the next two years. It includes an additional $165 billion for the Pentagon and $131 billion for non-defense programs. The bill comes after the tax...

Trump says his Fed chairPresident Trump indicated Friday he is close to deciding whether to retain or replace Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen in her position and will announce his choice in the near future. "I've had four... meetings for Fed chairman, and I'll be making a decision over the next two or three weeks," he said in a press conference on the White House lawn. Yellen, former Fed Governor Kevin Warsh, and current Governor Jerome Powell are reportedly among the candidates. Yellen's term expires in February. She was nominated by then-President Obama for the role and confirmed by the Senate in 2014. Trump has sent mixed messages on his view of the fed chief in the past, saying both that she has "done a good job" and that she should be "ashamed of herself" for making a "false stock market."

The Fed is getting ready forThe Federal Reserve is aboutto make a momentous decision that should not be taken lightly. The central bank is widely expected to announce the start of a reduction in its $4.4 trillion balance sheet... at the conclusion of its meeting on September 20. It's a move the Fed hopes will go smoothly, but which has the potential to rattle financial markets long accustomed to the Fed’s monetary largesse. The Fed bought large quantities of Treasury and mortgage bonds during the Great Recession and financial crisis of 2007 to 2009, in an effort to push down long-term borrowing costs and to stimulate an economy and credit markets that had ground to a halt. The policy, controversial in some quarters, was widely known as quantitative easing (QE). So the beginning of the reversal of QE is a big deal,...

Trump's shock debt ceilingAlex Wong/Getty Images Donald Trump surprised political observers bycaving nearly immediately to Democratic leadership on US debt ceiling negotiations, thoroughly undermining the slick deal-making... persona the president tried to play up as a candidate. Yet the deal has implications for Federal Reserve policy, as noted by Paul Ashworth of Capital Economics in his latest research piece. That’s because the Fed is expected to consider an additional interest rate increase at its December meeting, just as the new three-month-delayed debt ceiling deadline comes due. "The surprising deal made between President Donald Trump and the Democrats to fund the government until December 8th means that the Fed’s December Federal Open Market Committee meeting could take place against the backdrop of a...

Trump just added new suspenseCarlos Barria/Reuters; Composite by Bob Bryan/Business Insider Like any good reality television producer, Donald Trump doesn’t want to go into the season finale of his appointment of the next chair... of the Federal Reserve with all his cards on the table. That’s probably why, after recent reporting in Politico that Trump was favoring his close adviser, former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn, for the powerful post, Trump decided to insert fresh uncertainty into the mix in a Wall Street Journal interview. Keeping current Fed Chair Yellen on her toes, Trump said she’s still in the running for a second term appointment — even though he accused her of keeping rates low to help President Barack Obama during the election campaign. "She is in the running, absolutely," he told The Wall...

The Fed has undermined the economy's growth

Business Insider - 1 Jul 2017 16:54
The Fed has undermined theAndrew Harnik/AP The Fed’s hope was that quantitative easing would stimulate economic growth. But a former senior economist for the Fed believes it has done the exact opposite. Speaking at the... Mauldin Economics Strategic Investment Conference, Dr. Lacy Hunt, the executive vice president of Hosington Investment Management and former senior economist for the Dallas Fed, said that quantitative easing has created “significant unintended consequences.” The Worst Expansion in US History “What the Fed did was, they said to the world we are undertaking quantitative easing so we can boost the stock market… and the stock market will then produce a wealth effect and invigorate the economy.” While the Fed has increased its balance sheet by $3.57 trillion since 2008, and the S&P 500 is up...
