I don't think this deserves its own thread, so I'm going to post it in here...

From my phone news:
Quote:
Fed to raise interest rates once more in third quarter, then done: Reuters poll
Reuters

The U.S. Federal Reserve will remain patient for a little longer than thought just last month, waiting until the third quarter before raising rates once more, and then stay on the sidelines, a Reuters poll of economists showed. Read the full story
...but if I'm reading the cbot futures correctly, they don't expect any change in the overnight rate for the rest of 2019, and, in fact, the next move is going to be a cut.

So, who's right? The polled-economists or the futures-traders?
