This past Wednesday the Federal Reserve announced another increase to the federal funds rate. More importantly than an increase in rates were the sentiments they communicated about their future forecast for the economy. The key takeaway from this release included their confidence in the economy to experience continued growth for the next three years. Just as importantly was the removal from their language about how their actions would be accommodative to monetary policy into the future. With how intently the market focuses on the language used by the Federal Reserve it was interesting to see bond prices improve for 3 consecutive days to end the week. For now, it appears interest rates are flattening out for the time being. Next week will let us know if this trend will continue.
