What’s expected at the next FOMC meeting?

What’s expected at the next FOMC meeting?

In the final FOMC meeting of 2018, the central bank raised interest rates from 2.25 percent to 2.5 percent. The Fed included in its statement that further “gradual” rises would be appropriate but lowered its projections to two hikes in 2019.

The markets are therefore expecting a pause on interest rates when the FOMC meets on 29-30 January. However, an unexpected hike or cut, or even the tone of the accompanying minutes, could produce a reaction from the markets.
