Fed Gov. Christopher Waller speaks
Consumer sentiment

What would a pause in the Federal Reserve interest rate hikes mean?

Most experts agree that the Federal Reserve will pause interest rate hikes after their meeting from June 13th – June 14th. A pause is better than another hike, but what does it really mean for consumers? Most will still feel the effects of higher rates and persistent inflation, but credit won’t be any tighter for the foreseeable future.

What will really matter to market sentiment and to the future of where mortgage rates may go is what the inflation numbers look like on June 13th. If the Fed sees that its policies are working, we may see continued pauses or, better yet, rate cuts.
