  • Täna teatab Föderaalreserv Eesti aja järgi kell 20.15 oma otsusest intressimäära poliitika osas. Viimaste päevade turuliikumine indikeerib, et oodatakse pisut positiivsemat nägemust Fed-ilt tuleviku osas. Tõde selle realiseerumise või mitterealiseerumise kohta selgub juba õige pea.

    Briefing.com aga näiteks ei näe põhjust varasema fed-i ettevaatliku nägemuse sõnastuse muutmiseks:

    Briefing.com expects the stated Fed outlook to remain the same as the Committee judges that some inflation risks remain. The extent and timing of forward policy adjustments will depend on the incoming data and the effect on the Fed's outlook. Briefing.com expects over time that the Fed's patience will bring reward as more modest price pressures come from the slower pace of growth without the economic risk of extending the policy tightening. Time will tell whether more tightening is in fact necessary.

    Watch the Emotions, not the Fed

    "Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them."

    -- David Hume

    The FOMC interest rate decision at 2:15 p.m. EDT this afternoon will have a major impact on the course of the stock market. Determining the impact on the market is mostly an exercise in psychology; it is much more important to understand the thinking and feelings of market players than it is an attempt to exactly predict what the Fed might do.

    No one is expecting the Fed to actually adjust interest rates today. The focus is on the accompanying policy statement and whether the language will be less concerned about the problem of inflation and more concerned about economic growth and problems such as subprime mortgage lending. Market bulls are hoping for at least a subtle hint that an interest rate cut may be forthcoming in the next few months.

    The less optimistic folks will tell us that there simply is not enough evidence yet that inflation has cooled enough for the Fed to back off from its hawkish stance. The core inflation rate is still running higher than they would like and even though there is some economic slowdown and issues in housing, inflation remains the Fed's primary focus.

    The big question for us this morning is figuring out how the market will react. What makes things particularly tricky is that we have had a low-volume bounce over the last five days in front of the news. If folks are buying then they are obviously expecting something positive and that means there will be some pressure to lock in gains as the news hits.

    What complicates things is that the bounce the last few days, while producing good-sized point gains, has not come with the volume and vigor that reflects a high level of confidence that the market is ready to go higher. The action has felt like it was more a product of trapped bears and underinvested bulls who were forced to add long exposure as the market failed to pull back. A sudden increase in negativity has put a floor under the market and the generally positive recent news flow is helping to produce a squeeze higher.

    Are market players still sufficiently negative and poorly positioned that they will be squeezed once again on the Fed news? That is a possibility but what is more important is the degree to which they are expecting something friendly from the Fed. The high level of underlying negativity vs. positive expectations about the Fed creates a very interesting tug of war and one whose outcome I am not going to try to predict.

    I plan on waiting to see what the news is before I make any big moves. Conditions seem ripe for a further squeeze higher but the Fed could quickly change the mood if it doesn't toss us some slight dovishness.

    We have a flat start setting up. Overseas markets were mixed and oil and gold are trading up.

  • FOMC keeps Fed Funds at 5.25% as expected
    FED SAYS FUTURE 'POLICY ADJUSTMENTS' DEPEND ON EVOLUTION OF OUTLOOK FOR INFLATION, GROWTH
    FED SAYS INFLATION PRESSURES LIKELY TO MODERATE BUT HIGH RESOURCE USE LEVELS COULD SUSTAIN PRESSURES

    The Federal Open Market Committee decided today to keep its target for the federal funds rate at 5-1/4 percent. Recent indicators have been mixed and the adjustment in the housing sector is ongoing. Nevertheless, the economy seems likely to continue to expand at a moderate pace over coming quarters. Recent readings on core inflation have been somewhat elevated. Although inflation pressures seem likely to moderate over time, the high level of resource utilization has the potential to sustain those pressures. In these circumstances, the Committee's predominant policy concern remains the risk that inflation will fail to moderate as expected. Future policy adjustments will depend on the evolution of the outlook for both inflation and economic growth, as implied by incoming information. Voting for the FOMC monetary policy action were: Ben S. Bernanke, Chairman; Timothy F. Geithner, Vice Chairman; Thomas M. Hoenig; Donald L. Kohn; Randall S. Kroszner; Cathy E. Minehan; Frederic S. Mishkin; Michael H. Moskow; William Poole; and Kevin M. Warsh.
