consider the timing and degree of rate cuts after trade friction uncertainties are eased after the G20 summit, which ended last week.
Internally, US economic data that will be released in the middle of this month may cement the Fed’s determination to cut rates.上海乌托邦
Since 2011, whenever the actual US GDP growth rate exceeded the endogenous growth rate
by more than 1.5 percent, the actual figure underperformed the theoretical figure in th上海乌托邦
e next quarter. That’s because a significant departure from endogenous growth can hardly sustain.
上海乌托邦女神会所In the first quarter of this year, the actual growth rate outpaced the theoretical rate by 2.09 percent, the highest level since the fourth quarter
of 2011. If the historical pattern still works, this strong economic data could mean a sharp plunge in the second quarter.
上海乌托邦As the Fed said it will closely monitor the implications of incoming information for the economic outlo
ok, disappointing economic data to be released later this month may become the last straw for the Fed t
o act. Therefore, a clear rate cut sign and path may emerge at the FOMC meeting at the end of this month after the Fed digests the data.
Secondly, the market may have forecast the timing of rate cuts earlier than the Fed’s actual plan. The rate cut window is expected to open as late as in the fourth quarter.上海乌托邦女神会所
Before the latest FOMC meeting, traders saw a more than 70-percent chance that the first rate cut will take p
lace this month, as well as a 96-percent chance that at least one rate cut will take place by the end of September.
However, this estimation may excessively go ahead of the Fed’s actual moves. We expect that the上海乌托邦女神会所
rate cut window will open in the fourth quarter, with the first cut likely to come in December or January.
Looking back in history, the average time the Fed took to switch their rate policy – or the time interval between las上海乌托邦女神会所
t rate hike and first rate cut and vice versa – has been 11.7 months since 2000, even excluding the post-2008 prolonged low-rat
e period. Based on this pattern, the rate cut is unlikely to come this month but more likely to come after September.
Besides the historical pattern that probably continues, two new factors will also delay the timing of the first rate cut.
On the one hand, the current US policy rate is the lowest among those in all the periods when the
Fed planned to start a round of rate cuts, indicating the limited room for rate cut. This makes it nec
essary to use the limited rate cut capacity at an appropriate timing, which may occur later than the market expects as
the US growth pressure will not peak this year but in 2020, according to IMF estimates.
