Prime Rate Forecast

At the March 18, 2020 FOMC monetary policy meeting, and in response to the continuing and global Novel COVID-19 coronavirus emergency, we believe the Fed will take the rare and extraordinary step of cutting its key benchmark interest rate --  the target range for the benchmark fed funds rate -- by 100 basis points, to a target range of 0% - 0.25%.  This cut would cause the United States Prime Rate (a.k.a the Fed Prime Rate) to be lowered to 3.25%. We put current odds on this happening at 95%.

FYI, and from the CDC website, symptoms of COVID-19, which may appear 2-14 days after exposure, include:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
Emergency warning signs for COVID-19 include:
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion or inability to arouse
  • Bluish lips or face



The current U.S. Prime Rate was lowered from 4.75% to 4.25% on March 3RD, 2020.


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


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 be cut to 3.25% at the March 18TH, 2020 FOMC monetary policy meeting: 95% (very likely.)
