What to Expect From the Fed Tomorrow

What to Expect From the Fed Tomorrow

December 13, 2016

If the year’s political events should teach us one thing, it’s that no result is ever 100% certain. However, financial markets seem to have forgotten this lesson and are pricing in an increase in the Federal Reserve’s benchmark rate with complete certainty. Recall that it’s been a full year since the Fed last increased the fed funds target to 25-50 bps; a rate increase tomorrow would take the overnight interbank lending rate higher by 25 bps to 50-75 bps.

November Office Employment: Labor Market Tightens

December 02, 2016

November’s nonfarm payroll report, which modestly missed expectations, showed a few surprises. Total nonfarm jobs rose by 178,000 versus consensus for a gain of 180,000 jobs, but job growth in the private sector fell a little short, rising by 156,000. Over the past three months, private non-farm payroll growth has slowed to an average of 165,000 (September – November) versus the prior three months’ average of 197,000 (June – August.) Revisions to the prior two months reduced private employment gains by 17,000 on a combined basis.

The FOMC Holds Rates “For the Time Being”

September 21, 2016

The Federal Open Market Committee voted to hold the target range for the Federal Funds rate at 0.25% to 0.50%, although three dissenters voiced support for a rate hike today. In a dovish statement, while the Committee judged that “the case for an increase in the federal funds rates [had] strengthened” and that “near-term risks to the economic outlook appear roughly balanced,” the Committee ultimately “decided…to wait for the further evidence of continued progress toward its objectives.”

July Office Employment Rebounds; Gains Should Make for September Move

July Office Employment Rebounds; Gains Should Make for September Move

August 05, 2016

July’s nonfarm payroll report exceeded expectations, handily topping estimates with a gain of 255,000 jobs overall and 217,000 jobs in the private sector. Office employment rose by a robust 88,000 as well (Table 1 and Chart 1 on the following page), led by strength in professional and business services, where almost 1/3 of the advance stemmed from job gains in accounting and bookkeeping services, architectural and engineering services and computer systems design. At least for now, recent data suggest the labor market is firing on all cylinders: the average monthly gain in office-using payrolls over June and July equals 99,000—more than twice as much as the 42,500 average monthly gain over April and May. 

 
 
 
Commercial Real Estate Activity: “Stable to Improving”

Commercial Real Estate Activity: “Stable to Improving”

July 13, 2016

The Beige Book report for July, which summarizes comments received from businesses and other contacts outside the Federal Reserve, suggested that economic growth during the most recent period was “modest.” However, unlike prior months, no District described growth as slowing or flat. Just two Districts noted any impact from the Brexit vote; Boston suggested that while Brexit presented downside risks to aggregate economic growth, those with direct exposure “did not expect severe negative impacts on their own firms' outcomes” while Dallas noted as with the upcoming presidential election, Brexit served as a source of overall uncertainty.
