Fed: Rates Unchanged But for How Long?

By NinjaTrader Team

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) concluded its two-day meeting, and while the expectation is that the Fed will keep rates unchanged, the real question that market participants want answered is: For how long will they keep rates at this level? Erik Norland, executive director and senior economist at CME Group, joined us on this week’s “See the Futures” to discuss different areas of the economy and what they mean for future Fed decisions, inflation measures, and possible recession scenarios.

Additional topics discussed in this free livestream:

  • Lag times from hiking rates to economic downturns

  • Relationship of declining interest rates and increasing debt levels

  • Relevance of owners’ equivalent rent on CPI

  • Why the Fed pays little attention to energy prices

  • Chart analysis of E-mini S&P 500 futures
