FED WILL START RATE CUTS IN JUNE




The expectation of a Federal Reserve interest rate cut in June reflects the central bank's cautious approach to monetary policy adjustments amid ongoing uncertainty about the trajectory of inflation. According to a survey, respondents anticipate the Fed to wait for additional data confirming whether inflation is on a sustained path toward its 2% target before taking action.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell has reiterated the likelihood of policy easing at some point this year, acknowledging the need for accommodation in response to economic conditions. However, factors such as persistent inflationary pressures and a resilient labor market may delay the timing of rate cuts. Market sentiment has shifted from earlier expectations of rate cuts in March or May to now align more closely with Fed officials' comments, with futures markets pricing in the first rate reduction in June. This adjustment reflects a consensus among investors that the Fed will prioritize a data-driven approach and exercise patience in adjusting monetary policy.
