Official notice on Fed rates
After the session that just ended, the Fed announced its intentions on interest rates and bond purchases. The agency will actively reduce its monthly bond purchases. The Fed will only buy $ 60 billion worth of bonds per month (50% less than before November and 33% since December) and that number will keep falling until it hits zero.
As for rates, the Fed did not hike immediately and is waiting for the market to improve. The FED is expected to hike rates three times in 2022, twice in 2023, and twice in 2024. Interest rates will rise from March 2022.
The Fed also said more that a number of people are receiving assistance during the epidemic and do not want to go back to work. In addition, inflation rose to the highest level in 40 years. The inflation situation is believed to be due to the amount of money received from the epidemic relief package last year, as well as the effects of the epidemic, which are slowing the movement of goods and causing prices to rise. However, the Fed assumes that the current situation will improve by the end of 2022.
A major believer in the Fed is the US government. So the Fed is having a hard time making a decision to hike rates. If interest rates rise, it will affect the economy and the US government will also have to pay higher interest rates. Conversely, if interest rates are kept low, inflation will continue to rise.
The Fed President also raised the issue of crypto and stablecoins. Fed chief Jerome Powell says he is not concerned about cryptocurrencies disrupting financial stability in the US. “Stablecoins can certainly be a useful and efficient part of serving consumers in the financial system when properly regulated,” he said.
When it comes to crypto, Mr Powell thinks it is more of a speculative asset and doesn’t care if crypto is hurting financial stability right now … The Fed chairman also thinks crypto is risky and not covered by anything. Now he also has a message to Congress that calls for clearer legislation regarding crypto.
