The US manufacturing and service industry data released yesterday showed that business activity has slowed down, but it is still higher than the average level before the epidemic, indicating that the US economy is still on a moderate recovery path. Several Fed officials said last week that the Fed needs to speed up the pace of tapering and raise interest rates as soon as possible.
After several Fed officials’ speeches, the market’s expectations for the timing of the Fed’s interest rate hike have increased. In addition, the re-election of Fed Chairman Powell is also conducive to the continuity of the Fed’s monetary policy. The current market is the main tone for the expected tightening of the Fed's future monetary policy and interest rate hikes.
Some officials believe that the Fed cannot raise interest rates too aggressively although facing the pressure of rising inflation. However, a considerable number of Fed officials still emphasize that the rise in inflation is temporary. Although it is acknowledged that the increase in inflation will last longer than expected, officials said that as supply chain problems are fixed, inflation will fall back in the mid-2022.
Some officials said that if they rush to raise interest rates, it will hurt US economic growth. The current market is facing two power games: interest rate hikes and inflationary pressures. Interest rate hikes may harm the US economy. Non-interest rate hikes and high inflation will also make people's lives more and more stressful. At the moment, the world is paying attention to the Fed's every move.
As most parts of the world enter the winter, the epidemic in Europe and the United States has once again counterattacked, and the surge in confirmed cases of infection has forced European and American countries to introduce relevant blockade restrictions again. This will bring a new round of challenges to the global economy, and may bring an even worse blow to the already tightening supply chain problems, and inflationary pressures will also face a situation of continuous rise.
