What the market expects

Market operators consider that there is 73% chance that the Fed keeps rates stable in the range of 5% to 5.25% June 14. This would mark the end of its most aggressive cycle of increases since the 1980s. Bets in favor of a pause were supported by data showing an increase in the number of applications for unemployment benefits in the United States, indicating an easing in the labor market and could further curb inflation.

Furthermore, investors expected the Fed to temporarily halt its campaign of rate increases due to concerns on the liquidity of the market, generated by the negotiations on the US debt ceiling. “We are all worried about liquidity,” said Invesco’s Ben Jones.
