Second Fed rate hike delay this year slowly getting more official

August 27, 2015

Janet Kick a Hole In the Sky

July 29, 2015

The July meeting was never meant to be much of a thing with the Federal Reserve, and that’s exactly how it’s worked out. The Fed seems like it is still targeting a modest increase in rates in September, with – as many strategists have already noted – the real action to come later on down the road, as Janet Yellen and others have argued that the first move isn’t the one to really worry about.

Interest rates hikes are not done and dusted

July 20, 2015

U.S. Federal Reserve Board Chair Yellen talks with Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, during the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors meeting in Istanbul

The U.S. and British central banks are scrambling to be the first of the majors to raise interest rates after a long period of unprecedented monetary generosity. It won't happen immediately but both Janet Yellen, who chairs the U.S. Federal Reserve, and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney say there will be a hike this year (Yellen) or around the end of the year (Carney). Might this be a bit of a rush? Not everything in the world economy is as sanguine as the U.S. and British economies purport to be.
