Fed rate lift-off in 2023, with tapering starting early next year – JP Morgan

In a post-Fed communiqué, JP Morgan backs the 2023 rate-hike woes while also expecting the dialing back of the bond purchases from 2022.

“It appears that faster progress toward reopening and higher inflation surprises revealed some hawks on the FOMC,” said JP Morgan.

On the same line, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said, “Would be prepared to adjust policy if inflation expectation moved too high. Many participants forecast conditions for liftoff will be met sooner than previously thought.”
