US-Zinserhöhung Anbei ein topaktueller Bericht
Brian Bethune, an economics professor at Tufts University, agreed: “Obviously this tilts things potentially toward a rate hike later this year.”
Prior to the report, economists said a weak payroll number number would have made the markets even more convinced that the Fed was on the sidelines. Before the data, markets had priced in only one rate hike until the end of 2018.
“Markets went beserk after Brexit and overreacted. This report will help the come a more sane middle ground,” Bethune said.
“They will probably anticipate one rate hike later this year. That’s the most likely path I can see at this point.”
That said, don’t expect a rate hike this month.
“The Fed will almost certainly remain on hold at their next meeting on July 26-27,” said Jim O’Sullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, expressing a widely held view. Economists said the Fed will want the dust to settle from the U.K. voter decision to leave the European Union.
