U.S. Federal Reserve

By Pedro Nicolaci da Costa

The Federal Reserve faces a delicate few months ahead amid internal debates over when to start raising interest rates and how to adjust its public guidance about its likely actions.

Fed officials in September repeated their assurance that they will hold their benchmark short-term rate near zero for a “considerable time” after the end of their bond-buying program. Most of them—14 out of 17–indicated they expect to start lifting rates next year, and top policy makers officials have encouraged market perceptions that they are likely to move next summer. But discussions have heated up over when to move, with some officials saying they might want to act sooner and others wanting to wait longer.

With the bond purchases on track to end in October, officials are likely to tweak the “considerable time” sentence in their policy statement by yearend. But they will be careful, knowing any significant change could trigger a strong market reaction.

One communication challenge for Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen and her colleagues is reconciling a gap between the sentiment expressed in the policy statement, which indicates the central bank will be very cautious before raising rates, and its so-called dot plot, released quarterly. That chart shows each policy maker’s forecast for short-term rates—portrayed as a dot on a chart each year—without identifying the individual by name. The September dot plot showed some officials expecting to raise rates a bit higher over time than they did in June, triggering jitters among investors.

 

Ms. Yellen, at her March press conference, downplayed the dots’ significance. And at her September press conference she emphasized the uncertainty surrounding each forecast. Many analysts have also noted that individual Fed officials’ influence on policy varies widely, meaning some dots—such as hers—count more than others.
