Fed News: January 2024 Meeting



As anticipated, the Federal Reserve has chosen to maintain its current policy rates during its latest meeting. This decision comes amidst ongoing speculation and anticipation regarding potential rate cuts in 2024. Here's what you need to know about what lies ahead and how it may impact your financial decisions.


Projected Rate Cuts Ahead?

In December, board members projected the possibility of up to three rate cuts in 2024. However, before the January meeting, there was speculation among investors regarding whether the first cut would occur at the March meeting. The latest Fed guidance suggests that any future changes will depend on incoming economic data. Considering the current economic trends, hopes for a rate cut in March appear to be diminishing due to concerns about potentially reigniting inflation.


Should you wait to buy, refinance, or access equity?

One of the critical aspects to consider in light of the Fed's decision is how it may impact mortgage rates. Mortgage rates often respond to demand for mortgage-backed securities, and investors frequently act in anticipation of Federal Reserve decisions. This could mean that you have an opportunity to secure lower rates before any official Fed actions take place.
