The fed raised rates 0.25% to a 0.75%-1% range as expected, and kept in language for a gradual path with regards to future hikes. Many had expected them to remove “gradual” from their statement to allow for a more aggressive approach in the future, and the markets viewed the statement as dovish as a result.
Tomorrow brings Initial Jobless Claims, Housing Starts, Building Permits, and the Philadelphia Fed.
