Economic news: Fed hiked rates by 75 bps and Fed Chairman sounded hawkish. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell vowed on Wednesday that he and his fellow policymakers would “keep at” their battle to beat down inflation. Fed foresees its policy rate rising at a faster pace and to a higher level than expected, the economy slowing to a crawl, and unemployment rising to a degree historically associated with recessions.
Powell was blunt about the “pain” to come, citing rising joblessness and singling out the housing market, a persistent source of rising consumer inflation, as being likely in need of a “correction.”
Federal funds rate projected for the end of this year signals another 1.25 percentage points in rate hikes to come in the Fed’s two remaining policy meetings in 2022, a level that implies another 75-basis-point increase in the offing.
Fed expects GDP growth to slow down to 0.2% in Q4, but climb to 1.2% by 2023. Unemployment rate is expected to climb to 4.4% by 2023.
USD hit a new high against majors and US stock indices tumbled.
