    FOMC to cut rates five times in 2024 – TDS

    New Fed call: economists at TD Securities are now looking for the FOMC to cut rates by five times this year starting in May.

    May is the most likely meeting where the Fed can begin easing policy

    Notable shifts in the macro data and the Fed's likely bent to ease preemptively have led us to assign greater odds to a softer landing scenario for the US economy this year. In this context, we are now looking for the FOMC to cut rates five times in 2024, with the Fed funds rate ending the year at 4.00%-4.25%. We continue to expect the Fed will reach its neutral policy stance at 2.75%-3.00% by the end of 2025.

    Given our still very constructive outlook for inflation, we still think that May is the most likely meeting where the Fed can begin easing policy. In our view, inflation will likely determine when the Fed will begin easing policy while economic activity will determine the pace and magnitude of rate cuts.

    A still strong growth profile is currently allowing the Fed to be patient as it seeks to gather further confirmation that core price disinflation is not a temporary phenomenon. However, we think that at the first clear sign of growth deceleration, the Fed will react more swiftly toward loosening the policy restraint.
