Today, the market is experiencing a remarkable resurgence of positive sentiment after three consecutive days of consolidation leading up to the FOMC meeting. As uncertainty surrounding monetary policy is expected to ease in the coming days, the likelihood of another Fed rate hike in 2023 appears improbable.
This change in market expectations can be mainly attributed to the swift decrease in inflation and the projected continued decline in the future. However, it’s crucial to note that short-term interest rates are anticipated to remain high due to the persistence of core inflation above historical norms.
