The Fed raises interest rates by another 75 basis points

Edition #35 - 23 SEP 2022


Powell says policymakers see the need to lift the rate to a "restrictive level" and "keep it there for some time".

Officials forecast that rates would reach 4.4% by the end of 2022 and 4.6% in the next year, a more hawkish shift in their so-called dot plot than expected. That implies a fourth-straight 75 basis-point hike could be on the table for the next gathering in November, about a week before the US midterm elections.
