FOMC Meeting Schedule (Tentative) for 2008

Earlier today, The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) released its tentative monetary policy meeting schedule for 2008. The FOMC doesn't always stick to the exact dates on the schedule (hence tentative), but they do always meet at least 8 times per calendar year.

Why is this schedule important to you? Because it's at these monetary policy meetings that The FOMC votes on whether to raise, lower or make no changes to The Fed Funds Target Rate, and when the Fed Funds Target Rate changes, the U.S. Prime Rate (also known as the fed, national or WSJ Prime Rate) will also change.

Here's the tentative schedule for 2008:

January 29-30, 2008

March 18, 2008

April 29-30, 2008

June 24-25, 2008

August 5, 2008

September 16, 2008

October 28-29, 2008

December 16, 2008
