The November FOMC meeting is over and they left the Fed Funds Target Rate – upper bound untouched at 1.25%.


The EFFECTIVE Fed Funds rate is only 1.07%.


The implied probability of a DECEMBER rate hike is now 87.5%.


Here is the statement where they add that “the balance sheet normalization program initiated in October 2017 is proceeding.”
