Fed Might Begin Thinking About Raising Rates at Some Point – Ep. 56

February 25th, 2015|0 Comments

Janet Yellen’s prepared remarks were the most dovish yet
If economy is improving, why do we still need “a high degree of accommodation?”
There is still room for “substantial improvement in the labor market”
Any modification of guidance will not necessarily indicate rate increase
Yellen states lower energy prices is positive for the economy, yet looks for higher inflation
The Fed says outlook is data dependent and the data is getting worse



  • The Bravado of Borrowers

    Last week a scene unfolded in Athens, largely unnoticed by American eyes, that provided all the visual and metaphorical symbols needed to define the current state of the global economy. more>>

Cheri LeasMaybe during Yellen's next statement, the country will find out that the Fed feels that we have possibly progressed to the point that the liklihood exists that the Fed may continue thinking about the probability of considering the potentiality of perhaps raising interest rates when it seems plausible to do so.

Yaakov SchatzIsrael is along the coast of the Mediterranean and most of it is not a desert. The prices of water are government controlled and were raised from about a dollar per 1000 litters to about 2.5$. This was done in order to allow for wide desalinating. Now the prices were reduced by 10%, which of course is close to meaningless (maybe 5$ a month for an average household).15 hours ago   ·  1

Milan MamusichIn Europe we have seen the type of crisis Madame Chairman Yellen is so busy working on with the rest of her cronies at the Board of Governors at the FED. My parents generation still vividly remember the greatest ever recorded "Pengő" hyperinfaltion (surapssing that of the Weimar Republic in Germany and the more recent Zimbabwe deabcle) that happened in Hungary after WW II. When the Soviets occupied Hungary they engaged in what today would be called QE infinte to bring the country to its knees. They succceded. Peter Schiff is absolutely right, that no country has ever escaped unpunished moneyprinting on the scale the US is emgaged in right now, I believe that the coming US hyperinflation heralded by Peter Schiff will surpass that of Hungary which happened in 1946. hours ago

Jake HernandezIt's psychological. When people hear "we'll consider raising rates" if the economy improves, people process "we will raise rates" if the economy improves. Those particular people can't or won't understand the difference. Then, because of the FED's earlier meetings, these people then equate those words to "we'll raise rates somewhere around summer" which also leads to "we believe the economy will improve in the summer or second quarter." Basically, they are thinking the same exact thing as always even though the FED is saying something completely different this time around. It's a very linear type of thinking that prevents people from understanding distinct differences such as details.12 hours ago
