Re: UBS predicts Fed will cut interest rates deeply in the spring

Thanks for the info. That sounds great, but the question is...Can Americans make it till spring? If the interest rates go up again or keep going up till spring? I've researched and Americans are struggling hard and If they don't have a fixed APR, I really feel for them. The war is not making it easier for Americans it is however making it easier for those that have and corporations. God help us all!

To early to consider cutting rates yet.  Just my humble opinion until inflation is in the 2-3% range which by no means are we there yet.  Rather wait another year of pain then have to replay this in a few more years again.

I think the jury is still out on whether the fed can cool inflation in a relatively slow, but sustained manner and avoid a full on recession.

I think we are already in a recession.

Re: UBS predicts Fed will cut interest rates deeply in the spring

@SouthJamaica  Here is an article to the contrary Jamie Dimon Chase CEO has made comments of a possible 7% fed funds rate in the past. I do not see the feds cutting rates until  the inflation rate is much closer 2% than we are now. Wall Street is trying to find a way for the soft landing. I doubt it will happen.  Wall Street has also described the consumer as strong but also using credit cards to pay bills and raiding the 401k to do the same. Also missing car payments etc.  Which financial lane does Wall Street think the consumer is driving in? Credit card debt is at all time highs of over 1 trillion dollars.  The the goverment and the consumer needs to get there financial house in order otherwise there are serious economic consequences on the bad side my opinion. Here is a link to an article

These comments were made about a month ago or so.  Nothing has changed much since these comments

If I wanted to be cynical I'd be thinking that this were actually being considered as a way to trigger a dead cat bounce ahead of next November.

 

I choose to not be cynical.
