Deutsche analysts have updated their Fed view on the eve of the decision: they think the Fed will "take what the market is giving them" and hike by 75bp Wednesday and again by 75bp in July.
- They see an end-year Funds rate of "around" 3.50%, with a terminal rate of 4.00-4.25% (which will be reached in Q1 2023, a quarter earlier than they had previously expected).
- Their Dot Plot expectations: 2022 median Funds dot of around 3.5%; 2023 and 2024 at 3.8% apiece though "we would not be surprised if a few policymakers penciled in rate cuts for 2024".
- Overall they believe a 75bp raise will "help build Fed credibility that the monetary policy stance is adjusting quickly to a new reality of persistently elevated inflation. Ideally, these moves will reign in demand more quickly and prevent a further rise in inflation expectations, helping short circuit this possible adverse feedback loop before it starts."
- That said, Deutsche maintains their 2023 recession call.
