Rate hikes are about to end, investors hope


Investors on Wall Street appear to be harboring optimism that central banks in both the United States and Europe will soon discontinue their policy of interest rate hikes. According to market analysts, this sentiment played a significant role in driving the major stock market indices in New York to close Wednesday’s trading session with notable gains.

Financial experts have been engaged in an ongoing effort to deduce potential actions by central banks in the coming period, using recent economic data as a guiding factor. Later in the week, the annual meeting of central bank officials is scheduled to take place. During this event, Jerome Powell, the Chair of the US Federal Reserve, is anticipated to provide further insights into the Federal Reserve’s prospective strategies regarding interest rates.

Having already elevated the interest rate to its highest level in 22 years as a measure against inflation, the Federal Reserve is potentially considering another rate increase in September. Nonetheless, investors are harboring the hope that Powell and other key decision-makers will opt to halt these interest rate hikes at the earliest opportunity.
