"Patter on the best three day run since April, Huh? Yeah, for the financial markets, And it comes despite the uncertainty of a presidential election that hasn't been decided yet, and a contested election was once an area that had been dragging the market's down earlier. Well, something else happened in the election. Republicans appear to have held the Senate Democrats still control the house and as much as we pay attention to the presidential election, what happens in Congress might be more important for the markets. Gridlock in Congress tends to be beneficial to the stock markets. If you look back dating back to the 19 fifties, a divided Congress is the best thing for stocks. It tends to be up. About 17% in a given year when Congress is divided. It's about 13% when controlled by Republicans, 10.5% when controlled by Democrats, NBC's Rebecca Jarvis says Wall Street is betting there will be some kind of covert 19 stimulus package coming soon now that the makeup of Congress appears to be set for the next two years.

"Marketplaces Nancy Marshall Gangsters in Washington. What is on the plate? Well, this is a meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee. It sets interest rates, but it's not expected to change rates. At this meeting at the press conference, Powell will probably talk a little more about the Fed's new policy framework. Part of that involves aiming for an average of 2% inflation, the feds says, and let inflation get it. But over 2% if it's been lower than that, for a while, No. This is supposed to help narrow the gap between rich and poor. How it's all about Jobs David. The thinking at the Fed used to be. Don't let unemployment get too low because that'll fuel inflation is workers demand higher wages. But Greg McBride bankrate dot coms chief financial analyst told me that didn't happen last year, even when black and Hispanic jobless rates hit record lows. Unemployment really is, you know, kind of the tide that lifts all boats, as it comes down is the idea that you know that can also mean that the economic recovery is Mohr inclusionary that it reaches more people. I see And we'll be looking tomorrow for hints from the Fed as to where things were going as pandemic summer turns into fall. Yeah, the Fed releases economic projections for inflation, interest rates, unemployment and economic growth. The Fed will update its last projections, which turned out to be too pessimistic on unemployment. Nancy. Thank you. US factory Production rose just 4/10 of 1% last month. It's down nearly 7% year on year given pandemic. Stock market, The Dow is up 156 point 6/10 of a percent. The SNP is up 8/10 percent, the NASDAQ Let's hear is up 1.1%.

"A practical matter. We're limited by our mandate. We can only do things that support our mandate. But we weaken waken provided liquidity is needed. The Fed offered trillions of dollars to state and local governments and businesses this spring. The intervention was so huge that most of the loans weren't needed. Just the fact that we were there and willing to make those loans has meant that the capital markets in the lending resumed on its own because we were there is a back stuff. The chairman is 67 years old. He's a lawyer, former Treasury Department official former private equity executive And in a chaotic time he has been the face of stability. Good morning, everyone since early March, his regular press conferences earlier today, the Federal Open Market Committee announced one half percentage point reduction have announced regular moves to prop up the economy. You have cut rates to zero. You're buying on huge quantities of government debt. I guess the question is, what more can you realistically do? Tell me. Um, So let me say that we're committed to using our full range of tools. The sense intervention was arguably more significant than the trillions committed by Congress. As we talked on Friday, Powell was thinking ahead to whenever the pandemic might be over. He gave a speech last month announcing a different approach to inflation and to employment. The two huge economic indicators that the Fed is supposed to manage. If inflation gets a little high. If employment gets a little high, you're going to be less quick to stamp on it is that is that a fair summary? Yes, it is. In fact, what we've learned is that unemployment can be even lower than we thought. And not result in troubling levels of inflation. So we saw that for the last couple of years before the pandemic arrived, we had 3.5% unemployment, which was sort of the lowest period of sustained unemployment in 50 years. And we didn't see inflation. Result. Now, if you go back 50 years, inflation would have reacted very strongly to low levels of unemployment. So we saw that it didn't Where did inflation go? Why is it going away? So Low and declining inflation has been a phenomenon really around the world for the last few decades, and it comes from a from a couple of factors. One just is that With globalization, things can be made anywhere, And that means it's difficult to raise wages or prices. So if you.

"As the federal open market committee is meeting this week Bankrate dot coms senior economic analyst mark camera is watching all the action and spoke with almost Tom Hudler puts the fed they're hoping that that rate cut will do well obviously the main thing here is to put a bit of insurance in place to keep the economy all relatively solid footing so we do expect that the fed will reduce interest rates by one quarter of one percent and will likely acknowledge what it calls uncertainties about the outlook as it did in the most recent statement that released and we'll talk about the fact that the central bank will act as appropriate to sustain economic expansion which as you know turned eleven years old this summer as consumer debt keeps growing what role these lower interest rates play and how long do people have to take advantage of that yes Tom divert very good question that really is the permanent point for all of us but I think all of our readers a Bankrate dot com and obviously reduce interest rates generally have the impact of making borrowing a less expensive and so that the filters on through more immediately to things like go. home equity lines of credit auto loans but it also makes it more difficult for savings rates and so middle I've often said that savers were the forgotten casualties of low interest rate environment that we've been dealing with basically for a decade now but even though rates are low for savers it really does pay to shop around and in some cases if you do sufficient shopping around you may find a savings rate that is literally twenty times more generous verses while you might find had you not look so they they really does make a difference particularly if you're saving a large sum of money in something like a certificate of deposit while that's yeah that's well worth the shopping around in your view as an economic analyst word we sit down as regards the economy and the risk of recession is is that something we should be worried about in the back row yeah I had my my advice is don't lose any sleep and don't buy canned goods but we should be. we should be mindful of the need to save for retirement and save former agencies when we published our economists survey just a couple weeks ago collectively they put the risk out of recession between now and election day twenty twenty basically four out of ten on the positive fraud we've been running actually more positive on let's say the flow of economic reports lately where they had been really tilting toward negative surprises and now we've had some positive surprises including industrial production and homebuilder sentiment job today the rising gasoline prices that were anticipating because of events in Saudi Arabia will be yet another headwind there are some protections that we may see prices rise as much as fifteen to twenty cents a gallon that should be temporary of their no further hostilities over there that's worth mentioning that that would still keep gasoline prices on a national basis below where they were a year ago at this time mark is always great to talk to you thanks for the information Bankrate senior economic analyst mark hemorrhage and it's come most Tom leases right indoor Kamel financial update here your propellants Durrance money check with Jim chess go I generally lackluster day for U.

"What does that stand for Federal Open Market committee and who's on that? So that consists of all the members of the board of governors, which there can be seven, but there are currently five those are nominated by the president confirmed by the Senate and all twelve of the Reserve Bank presidents around the country who are actually chosen by their boards of directors subject to the approval of the board thought of a better, Akron, FOMC's hard to say, can you get some other acronym for that? Or we actually we may have to hire a branding consultant and get some better thinking on that for us. It's you know, it's a very basic acronym. Last. The fan released the minutes of your last FOMC meeting. Now you release your minutes not the day after the meeting. Why don't you release your minutes the day after a meeting we released a statement, which summarizes of decision and the language is very carefully structured to express the rationale for the decision. And then we actually go back and read the transcript, very carefully. We cumulate the perspectives offered by seventeen different members. And it takes three weeks to go through that process, and we polish the next we used to publish them with a couple of months delay. Now, we publish them with a three week delay. So they're meant to amplify. What's what's in the decision in those meeting a minute meetings? It said that there was fair debate about whether you should increase interest rates offense ones rates or not, but the unanimous. So was it fair to say that it was the United view of the FOMC that you should increase interest rates when it turns out that the debate was more divided than maybe the vote was, you know, so I would say one of the great things about our system is that we really have institutionalized diversity of perspectives twelve different. Reserve Bank presidents each of whom has his room own economic staff, and they come in. And so at every meeting we have a robust discussion debate and often disagreement over the past policy, and I personally think that's a great way to reach a better decision. So in the end people have to choose to to vote with the proposal or not in this case, everyone voted for all of us expressed at the meeting as reflect him when people don't vote for the proposal. It's recorded that they didn't vote for it is that they often issue. A a statement of why they descended and they'll explain themselves the whole thing. Explain yourself carefully to the public and transparently, and we try to put all of that out on the record. That's Federal Reserve chairman Jay Powell and coming up more the fed chairs conversation with Carlisle group.

"So. In case, you're not already there. Hopefully, someday, you can reside in that land of critical mass. We hear so many callers over the years. Calling in from the land of critical mass and usually have a very happy stories to talk about and if you'd like to land in Atlanta, critical mass where you don't have to set that alarm clock and get up and go to work every day unless you want to well, that's the way to do it become your own personal financial manager. Well, it's that time of the year. We're coming to another Federal Open Market committee meeting and it's coming up fast. In fact, it's going to be on this coming Wednesday. Now, it'll be a two day meeting and overnight pajama party starting on Tuesday and continuing into Wednesday but on Wednesday. We're going to have developments. We're going to have a statement from the Federal Open Market committee on monetary policy. And didn't that statement? I believe they will include for the eighth time in the rate normalization period. That started back at the end of two thousand fifteen. I believe they will announce another rate hike, it should be one quarter of one percent, otherwise known as twenty five basis points, and when that hike takes takes place on Wednesday that will bring the federal funds rate into the two to two and one quarter percent range, generally trades near the midpoint of that rain. So probably will trade around two hundred eighth percent. Most of the time in that area. And then there will be additional meetings this year. But the one in November on November seventh and eighth in my opinion will not result in any movement in short term rates. I do think though at the December meeting on the eighteenth tonight the nineteenth of December. I think the probabilities favor another rate hike to be announced on the nineteenth of December. If we continue to see good economic numbers, and you know, we've talked on this program about the fact that we are seeing good economic numbers. I think we'll see another rate hike in December. And if that happens that would bring the federal funds rate at year end into the two and a quarter two and a half range amid point in the area of two and three eighths percent. As for next year. If the economy continues to expand I think we'll see additional rate increases from the fed. In two thousand nineteen. So all of that is coming down the pike. The Federal Reserve certainly has it has its hands full because. In addition to what they call the normalization of interest rates. There are also of course, implementing their berry, very large quantitative tightening program. Now, you remember how that works quantitative easing, of course, took place over three major programs. During the earlier years of the economic recovery, which started back in two thousand nine the recovery. Started in two thousand nine. And during the early years of the recovery. There were three programs extended programs of quantitative easing. And what of course that involved was the. That'll reserve. Endorsing the purpose of treasury securities and agency securities in large amounts over a period of years to the point where the balance sheet holdings of treasuries and agencies at the Federal Reserve reached historic record levels. They were around at the absolute peak. They were around four and one half trillion dollars. That's right way way more than would normally be the size of the Federal Reserve balance sheet. And then what happened was when the decision. Well, the economy started to sustain itself in recovery. And what happened was the federal Federal Reserve decided that they would unwind. The quantitative easing program by doing the opposite or quantitative tightening. So after they had a mashed about four and a half trillion dollars insecurities on their balance sheet. They decided you know, what we're going to go back down and reduce the size of the balance sheet. But the way to do that. Was to put those securities back into the marketplace and make others by them at the market rate at that time. And so the way they've decided to do this so far. Is to redeem at maturity. Treasury and agency securities on the Federal Reserve balance sheet and place those securities back into the open market for others to Bach. And that's what's been going on. Now, they started out real small. They started out at a very very low level of quantitative tightening. That is if you will the repatriation of these treasuries agencies back into the open market and away from the Federal Reserve. And now they're getting very close. We're just one week away. From the point where the treasury. I mean, the fed will go back in full beaker. They will turn the gauge to full Baker in a week. Because in the month of October. They'll go to an annual rate of six hundred billion dollars or fifty billion dollars a month. Right now, they're at forty billion. They'll ratcheted up to fifty billion a month six hundred billion annual. And that will be effective in the fourth fourth quarter, October November December so far they have brought announced increases beyond the six hundred billion annual rate. And so what happens is you need to find buyers for these additional treasuries in agencies. They get basically thrown on the marketplace. At redemption. That's what we're looking at your local supply increases. And that's what we're looking at now in addition to tightening, which is that. A week from now will be a six hundred billion annual of new securities from the Sam point of the open market coming into the open market forbids and for buyers and coming off the Federal Reserve balance sheet where they've been sitting for years in addition to that. The bond market is going to have to absorb. The annual deficit which is added to the national debt and right now that is running in. A very very high fashion. And looks like it's going to be close to well. It'll be it won't be quite nine hundred billion the fiscal year ending next week, by the way fiscal year for the government. We're uncles tan next week looks like it won't be nine hundred billion the big eight hundred plus billion number eight hundred sixty whatever it turns out to be. And then we get into fiscal year two thousand nineteen. For. The government the school year. That deficit to Robert, and we should be back up over a trillion dollars annual within the next couple of years. The point of this is all of that has to be financed in the bond market, and that particular element requires the treasury to sell securities to finance the deficit. So we have that also. Right. So we have the quantitative tightening. And we have the ongoing deficit spending that has to be finance and all of this paper. You're well treasury paper in that case. Gets thrown onto the market. That's what we're looking at out here. And that's what's going on. Now. The Federal Reserve has a lot on its plate these days because they have to deal with the fact that they have to continue to implement the quantitative tightening, reducing their balance sheet, but they also have to provide a month three policy that allows the economy to continue to grow while we're running monumental deficit and growing deficits. So. That's why we're running these bizarre deficits in good times. You'll have to ask your local politician because it makes no economic sense to do what we are doing. But right now not. Voiced in the nation's capital to stand up on this. Seems like most people in the federal government preferred about something anything, but the deficit spending the national debt and the run up that we're seeing and especially with it happening in good times. That's what's bizarre in receptions. But in good times to see. We are listening. But it certainly. That's what Federal Reserve has to deal with. They have to monitor. Where? And. Come up new. The.
