【Events of the week】
In the early hours of Thursday, the Federal Reserve will hold a resolution on October interest rate, and the Bank of Japan and the Bank of Canada will discuss interest rate one after another this week.JPMorgan believes that the Federal Reserve's policy statement in October should be a little more hawkish than that in July and September, and may even indicate that the interest rate cut has balanced the risk of the economic outlook. But even so, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) may reserve some possibility for further easing in December or later.
The bank does not expect the Federal Reserve to make technical adjustments to the excess reserve rate, and the statement may not mention recent temporary / routine open market operations, although Powell may mention these issues in a post meeting press conference. In addition, Tom Porcelli, chief U.S. economist, capital markets division, Royal Bank of Canada, pointed out:
"The seven officials who asked for another rate cut this year are all members of the FOMC's voting Committee, which means they have a majority of seats on the Committee."
Some analysts believe that disagreements within the Fed will make the Fed suspend operations after the meeting and take a wait-and-see attitude before further interest rate cuts. Economists pointed out that the three consecutive interest rate cuts met the historical definition of "mid cycle adjustment" by Federal Reserve Chairman Powell, who first proposed this year's first interest rate cut.
According to CME's "Federal Reserve observation", as of the release, the probability of the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates by 25 basis points to 1.50% - 1.75% in October is 93.0%, and the probability of maintaining the current interest rate is 7.0%; the probability of cutting interest rates by 25 basis points to 1.50% - 1.75% in December is 72.1%, the probability of cutting interest rates by 50 basis points is 22.7%, and the probability of maintaining the current interest rate is 3.9%.
Before and after the resolution of the Federal Reserve interest rate, the initial value of the real GDP annualized quarterly rate in the third quarter of the United States, the number of ADP employment in October, the non-agricultural employment after the quarterly adjustment in October, and the unemployment rate in October will be released.
Analysts expect GDP to fall to 1.4% - 1.6% in the third quarter from 2%. Historically, the U.S. economy has grown by more than 3% a year, but the last time it reached that level was in 2005. Most economists believe that the current economic growth in the United States is unlikely to exceed 2%, at least in the longer term.
As for non-agricultural data, economists expect less than 100000 jobs to be created in the US last month, the lowest level since May and one of the lowest in seven years.
