Yesterday, we saw The Federal Reserve release the minutes of the last meeting. In a nutshell, The Fed is going to keep raising rates.
The terminal Fed Funds target rates is now 5.363% for the July FOMC (Fed Open Market Committee) meeting in 2023.
This comes as US Q4 GDP was revised lower on weaker consumer spending, revised downward to 1.4%
With the revision of Personal Consumption, real GDP was revised downward to 2.7% annualized QoQ.
The Taylor Rule estimate for The Fed Funds Target rate is 10.15%. The Fed is only at 4.75%, so there is a long way to go! Except that The Fed doesn’t follow any useful rule like the Taylor Rule. Just the “seat of the pants” rule.
