Swiss Franc trims some gains after Fed’s adjust interest rate cut expectations

Federal Reserve officials tilted hawkish on their June monetary policy meeting decision via the Summary of Economic Projections (SEP), as they project just one interest rate cut instead of the three foresaw since the December 2023 meeting. They voted unanimously to keep the federal funds rate (FFR) at around 5.25%-5.50% and upward revised their inflation expectations as measured by the Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Price Index.

The SEP showed that Fed officials upward revised their projections of the federal funds rate from 4.6% to 5.1% toward the end of 2024. Regarding Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for 2024, they project a 2.1% increase, as foreseen in March, while the Unemployment Rate is projected at 4%, unchanged from March’s SEP. PCE inflation is expected to rise from 2.4% to 2.6%, and Core PCE is expected to rise from 2.6% to 2.8%.

Earlier, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) revealed that May’s inflation in the US was unchanged, but lower than April’s data. This weakened the Greenback due to plunging US Treasury bond yields.

Ahead of the week, the US economic docket will feature May’s Producer Price Index (PPI) and Initial Jobless Claims (IJC) on Thursday.
