US Federation: assuming expansion proceeds with it will be more tight

The US Federal Reserve's forceful push to control the most sweltering expansion in 40 years has shook monetary business sectors as financial backers fret that more tight money related strategy will tip the United States economy into downturn

Federal Reserve officials agreed last month that interest rates may need to keep rising for longer to prevent higher inflation from becoming entrenched, even if that slowed the US economy.

Policy makers backed raising rates at their next meeting in July by either 50 or 75 basis points, according to minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee’s June 14-15 policy meeting released Wednesday in Washington. They viewed maintaining the central bank’s credibility to control inflation as crucial

"Many participants consider that a significant risk now facing the committee is that improving inflation can be embedded if the public starts to question the committee's determination to adjust the policy attitude as justified," said the treatise.

Officials also "acknowledge that policy placement can slow down the rate of economic growth for a while, but they see inflation returns to 2% as important to achieve maximum work on an ongoing basis."

The Fed's aggressive encouragement to curb the hottest inflation in 40 years has rolled out the financial market because investors are worried that a tighter monetary policy will provide US economic tips into the recession.

Officials raised a tariff of 75 base points in June, at most since 1994, lifting their benchmarks to the target range of 1.5% to 1.75%, and Chairman Jerome Powell suggested they could do the same thing again in July.

He told reporters at the post-meeting press conference that an increase in 75 basis points, or step 50 basis points, most likely on the table when the policy maker gathered on July 26-27.

Officials became big in June-even though previously indicated they liked the increase in 50 basis-points after inflation data came in heat and the main indicator suggests that expectations for future price pressures can accelerate among US consumers.

President Fed Kansas City Esther George, who disagreed with an increase in supporting a smaller increase, was the only 18 policy makers who did not move back with 75 basis points in June, the Minutes showed.

Central bankers in June "acknowledge the possibility that even tighter attitudes can be appropriate if inflationary pressures are increasing," said the treatise.

Political decision -makers noted that "if the expectations of inflation should be not anchored, it would be more expensive to bring inflation to the committee's objective".

Several officials since this rally have echoed the characterization by Powell of the probable result of the rate decision in July, even though the recession fears Mount.

The price index of personal consumer expenditure, which the Fed uses for its inflation target, has increased by 6.3% since May 2021 - more than three times the target of the central bank.

Powell said there were ways to reduce inflation while keeping the job market strong, but admitted that it would be a challenge.

Economists have lowered growth forecasts on data from data, showing low consumption expenditure, tightening financial conditions and a drop in American manufacturing activity.

Mortgage rates, which have doubled since the beginning of the year, also cool the housing market and some companies see lower demand.

The chances of an American recession in the next year are now about one in three, according to Bloomberg Economics. Similar pessimism is obvious in the future interest rate markets: investors bet that the Fed will reverse the price next year, which has stopped rate increases that civil servants do not predict it and begin to reduce rates By mid-2023.
