Powell's testimony before the Senate Banking Committee yesterday marketed a growing chance the central bank could lift rates by another half-percentage point when it meets later this month. What he's saying: "If the totality of the data were to indicate that faster tightening is warranted, we would be prepared to increase the pace of rate hikes," chair Jerome Powell said in his first testimony toSee more
The Federal Reserve on Wednesday raised interest rates by 50bps, the highest level in 15 years, indicating that the fight against inflation is not over yet despite some promising signs lately.

As U.S. inflation remains at multi-decade highs, the Federal Reserve has been aggressive with its interest rate hikes. In fact, rates have risen more than two percentage points in just six months. The 2022 rate hike cycle is the fastest over the past 35 years, reaching a 2.36 percentage point increase nearly twice as fast as the rate hike cycle of ‘88-‘89. The Fed expects to raise its target ratSee more
👀 Food for Thought 🤔 💎 Those that purchase crypto on centralized exchanges (CEX) are missing the bigger picture. 💎 Cryptocurrency, like the second part of the word says, is a "currency" (just digital 👾💻🖱️📱).

Federal Reserve officials are set to make a second abnormally large interest rate increase tomorrow as they race to cool down an overheating economy. The question for many economists and investors is just how far the central bank will go in its quest to tame inflation. Central bank policymakers raised the benchmark interest rate by ⬆️ 75 basis points in June for the first time since 1994 and signaled that another increase of that magnitude is possible in July. With #inflation unexpectedly accelerating to a fresh 40-year high in June and the job market still growing at a healthy clip, the Fed is under mounting pressure to move more aggressively to tame demand and slow surging consumer prices. But there are signs the economy is starting to cool off ❄️: The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits has gradually increased, companies have announced layoffs or hiring freezes, and the housing market is softening. Gross domestic product slowed in the first quarter of the year by 1.6%, and is expected to decline again in the second quarter.

I seriously doubt that raising interest rates will substantially reduce headline inflation. I DO believe that it will reduce core inflation. Food, oil, and housing costs would remain a serious problem in a recession. Avoiding stagflation while slowly raising rates should be the #1 priority of the Fed. I’m happy with the .75 rate hike yesterday. #Inflation #InterestRates #Economics #recession

The Fed could respond to the surge in inflation with its steepest interest rate increase since 1994. At its policy meeting tomorrow, the central bank may opt to raise rates by ⬆️ 0.75 percentage points, rather than the half-point that has been signaled for weeks. Just last month, Fed chairman Jerome Powell said that the central bank was not "actively considering" raising interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point to fight inflation. But after Friday's consumer price index report showed #inflation is rising faster than expected, we could see Powell may have to change his tune. Stocks plunged Friday and were down sharply again Monday across the globe following the number. The yield on the benchmark US 10-year Treasury bond rose to 3.27%, the highest level since November 2018 and #crypto caved during the weekend, with $BTC falling at one point below 21,000.
