U S Central Bank Will Raise Rates At Least Two More Times.

Recommended Posts


NEW YORK U.S. bond investors, who a month ago said that the Federal Reserve was almost done raising interest rates, are selling short-term government debt on mounting concern that the
central bank will raise rates
at least
two more times.
The market is still not pricing in enough Fed tightening," said Amitabh Arora, chief U.S. interest rate strategist at Lehman Brothers.
Interest-rate futures show that traders see a 94 percent chance that the Fed will raise rates a quarter point to 4.75 percent at its meeting March 28. The odds of a second lift to 5 percent at the meeting on May 10 jumped to about 60 percent, from zero percent last month.

With the B o J moving rates up, the ECB up there appears to be little scope left for Gordon "miracle economy" Brown--especially in the light of the latest inflation figures which are higher than expected.


The figures are likely to reinforce market expectations that the Bank of Japan will raise interest rates within the next few months as the economy recovers.
