Rate increase and reduction of US balance sheets

The Fed is expected to raise rates by 50 basis points today, in what would be the largest increase since 2000. The FOMC will also likely unveil long-awaited plans to reduce the Fed’s balance sheet starting with an outflow of maturing securities, which could begin this month. Jerome Powell may hint at further hikes, but probably won’t discuss their scope.

Next up will be the BOE, which could raise rates tomorrow to the highest in 13 years.

Also for ECB, it is time to start taming inflation, and a rate hike could come as early as July.
