Previous (Aug): 5.50% | Forecast: 5.50%


Investors are convinced that the FOMC will once again opt not to raise interest rates at its upcoming meeting this month. They have priced in rate cuts of 100 bps for 2024, which is questionable.


Powell confronts a mixed economic picture. While the labour market is resilient and consumer spending is solid, there are signs of slower growth and, in turn, lower inflation.


He is expected to reiterate that it is still premature to discuss policy shift as inflation remains well above the Fed’s target of 2%. But investors’ view could prove hard to alter at this point.
