US Economic Update – 16 June 2023
Fed pauses in June, but another hike is likely
- The Fed paused in June but member forecasts suggest rates will likely move higher.
- We now expect a 25bp hike at the July meeting, taking the Fed Funds target range to 5.25-5.50%. We expect this will be the peak although risks around this forecast remain tilted to the upside.
- With the Fed signalling a need for more policy tightening, rates are expected to stay high for longer and we now don’t see rate cuts starting until Q1 2024 (previously Q4 2023).
