Goldman Sachs says the Fed is done raising interest rates even if the dot chart looks different

The Federal Reserve has raised interest rates this year, even if a detailed chart due to be released this week shows another increase, according to Goldman Sachs.

“In November, we believe that further labor market rebalancing, better news on inflation, and the prospect of upcoming growth in the fourth quarter will convince more participants that the FOMC can forego raising interest rates altogether this year, as we believe it will.” Ultimately,” the company president said. Economist Jan Hatzius wrote on Saturday.

“But we expect the dot plot to show that a slim majority of 10 to 9 is still moving towards raising interest rates again, just to maintain flexibility for now,” he added.

The dot chart shows where individual members expect to see interest rates trend over the next several years. The Fed concludes its two-day policy meeting on Wednesday.
