Fed raises rates and leaves dots unchanged – USD recovers – Live Coverage

The Federal Reserve did acknowledge the downfall in inflation by lowering the forecast: 1.7% instead of 1.9% is the forecast for Core PCE this year. However, it did not impact the decision: they raised rates.

In addition, they did change their forecast for interest rates: one more is expected for 2017 – no change in the dot plot.

The Federal Reserve was widely expected[1] to raise interest rates for the third time in the past six months. Why? It’s not the data, which doesn’t look. It’s actually what the Fed has guided us. However, the fall of inflation[2] reported just hours before the publication, sent the dollar crashing down and cast some doubts about the move[3].

The big question is what’s next? Some answers are made available via the dot-plot, the statement and later with the press conference by Janet Yellen.
