Prime Rate Prediction

Prime Rate Forecast

As of right now, our odds are at 100% (certain) the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will vote to raise the target range for the benchmark fed funds rate, from the current 1.50% - 1.75%, to at least   2.25% - 2.50%, at the July 27TH, 2022 monetary policy meeting, with the U.S. Prime Rate (a.k.a Fed Prime Rate) rising to at least 5.50% -- with the strong possibility of an increase to 5.75%.

Ugly Inflation Readings

Year-on-year (YoY), the Consumer Price Index for June 2022 came in at a scary 9.06%, which instantly caused many rate watchers, including this shop, to predict that the Fed is likely to raise short-term rates by 100 basis points (1.00 percentage point) 13 days from now (July 27.)   

Also very notable: This morning's Producer Price Index (PPI) reading for June, which came in at 11.3% YoY, was higher than all credible forecasts. The all-time , YoY record-high for the PPI was set a few months back: the March 2022 reading was 11.6%.

Stay tuned.........
The United States Prime Rate was raised to the current 4.75% on June 15TH, 2022.
