  • Fed Holds Steady on Interest Rates

    first_img About Author: Phil Banker Despite rising “consumer sentiment” and confidence in the markets, the Federal Reserve announced no new interest rate hikes at the Wednesday meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC).The FOMC kept the current benchmark overnight lending rate target at a range of 0.5 percent to 0.75 percent. The Fed raised the target a quarter of a point in December 2016, only the second hike in the past 10 years.Per a statement released on the Fed’s website, the Committee attributed the steady interest rates to a generally improving economy.“Information received since the FOMC met in December indicates that the labor market has continued to strengthen and that economic activity has continued to expand at a moderate pace,” the Committee said. “Job gains remained solid and the unemployment rate stayed near its recent low. Household spending has continued to rise moderately while business fixed investment has remained soft. Measures of consumer and business sentiment have improved of late.”Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said recently that as the economy nears full employment, the Fed mustn’t be too slow with rate hikes.”Waiting too long to begin moving toward the neutral rate could risk a nasty surprise down the road – either too much inflation, financial instability, or both,” Yellen said in remarks prepared for delivery to the Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco. “”In that scenario, we could be forced to raise interest rates rapidly, which in turn could push the economy into a new recession,” she said.The Fed went on to say they plan on supporting the growing job market.“The stance of monetary policy remains accommodative, thereby supporting some further strengthening in labor market conditions and a return to 2 percent inflation,” they said.The Fed indicated in December 2016, following the aforementioned rate hike, that three additional hikes are on the way this year.Danielle Hale, Managing Director of Housing Research with the National Association of Realtors, said today’s announcement was in line with their expectations.“We weren’t anticipating a change of rates today, but we anticipate they’ll be raising funds in the future,” Hale said. “We think mortgage rates will continue to move up gradually with that policy of normalization.” Fed Holds Steady on Interest Rates Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post Tagged with: Fed Federal Reserve The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: McCalla Raymer Pierce and Hunt Leibert Jacobson Announce Merger Next: Blackstone’s Bet Pays Off With Invitation Homes IPO Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agocenter_img February 1, 2017 1,070 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Fed Federal Reserve 2017-02-01 Phil Banker in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Phil Banker began his career in journalism after graduating from the University of North Texas.
