Fed lifts rates in Powel's first meeting, says economic outlook has strengthened
Thursday, 22 March 2018 01:40 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |Federal ReserveThe Fed

The Federal Reserve on Wednesday lifted a key U.S. interest rates as expected and was upbeat about the road ahead, saying the economic outlook had strengthened despite some slowdown in the first quarter.

In the first meeting of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, the central bank avoided sending any overtly hawkish signal about its interest-rate policy.

The Fed stuck to its December forecast of three interest-rate hikes this year. The central bankers did push up their expected rate path in 2019 and 2020.

As widely expected, the Fed raised its benchmark federal-funds rate by a quarter percentage point to between 1.5% and 1.75%. That is the sixth quarter-point move since December 2015.

In its statement, the Fed said œthe economic outlook has strengthened in recent months, while noting that household and business fixed investment œhave moderated from their strong fourth-quarter readings.

The Fed now sees a total of eight quarter-point hikes in the fed-funds rate through the end of 2020 ” three this year (including Wednesday™s move), three in 2019 and two in 2020 ” with rates ending up near 3.4%.

That™s above the Fed™s revised estimate of longer-run neutral federal-funds rates. The Fed ticked up its estimate of the long-run neutral interest rates to 2.9% from 2.8% in December. That is the rate that is neither boosting nor tightening economic conditions.

Many economists had expected the Fed to pencil in four interest-rate increases this year at this meeting. Before the meeting, financial markets saw almost a 40% chance of four moves.

But other economists said the slowdown in growth in the first quarter gave the Fed room to wait. They argued the Fed could easily signal it intends to boost interest rates four times at its June meeting if economic conditions warrant.
