Federal Reserve Is Planning Only One Rate Cut in 2024

As reported last week, the Federal Reserve kept its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 5.25% to 5.5%, the highest in 23 years, citing the need for more evidence that U.S. inflation is cooling.

Since July 2023, rates have remained steady, with inflation still above the Fed’s 2% target despite some recent easing.

The government reported a 3.3% annual rise in consumer prices for May, slightly down from April’s 3.4%. The Fed noted “modest” progress in reducing inflation but acknowledged that price increases remain high.

Consequently, the Fed plans only one rate cut in 2024, down from an earlier forecast of three. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell stated that while the latest Consumer Price Index report is encouraging, more evidence is needed before loosening monetary policy.
