Prime Rate Forecast

As of right now, our odds are at 90% the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will vote to maintain the target range for the benchmark fed funds rate at the current 1.50% - 1.75% at the March 18TH, 2020 monetary policy meeting (likely), and keep the United States Prime Rate at 4.75%.


The current U.S. Prime Rate was lowered from 5.00% to 4.75% on October 30TH, 2019.


NB: U.S. Prime Rate = (The Fed Funds Target Rate + 3)


  • After five consecutive months of contraction for the American manufacturing sector, the Purchasing Manager's Index (PMI®) from the Institute for Supply Management® (ISM®) came in at 50.9% for January 2020, indicating expansion.
  • Inflation, however, remains muted, and below the Federal Reserve's 2% objective. The latest reading on the Core Personal Consumption Expenditures Price Index was 1.6% year-on-year.

Stay tuned for the latest odds, and for current U.S. economic data (inflation, jobs, economic growth, wages, etc.) 


Current Odds

  • Current odds the United States Prime Rate will hold at 4.75% after the March 18TH, 2020 FOMC monetary policy meeting: 90% (likely.)
