FED hike aftermath series: hike probabilities over next 12 months

FED hike aftermath series: hike probabilities over next 12 months

 

Hike probability sharply spiked after last FOMC meeting, where projection material showed that the U.S. Federal Reserve is still projecting one more hike for 2017, which is likely to be December. The November FOMC statement suggested that the Fed is on its path to a hike in December. President Trump has recently announced his pick for Fed Chair and it is Jerome Powell, who will be heading Fed once Yellen’s term expires in February next year.  Current FOMC rate is at 100-125 basis points. (Note, all calculations are based on data as of 27th November)

The probability is suggesting,

 

  • Since our last review a week ago, the probability for the near month has remained somewhat flat. The market is attaching 93 percent probability of a rate hike in December, instead of 91 percent.
  • However, interestingly, the probability of far months have tightened. The market is now pricing the 2018 hike in March instead of May in the previous week. The market is now attaching 50.1 probability to a rate hike in March.
  • In addition to that, the market is now pricing a second hike in 2018 and that in November, with 51.8 percent probability.
