    Only a few weeks ago the Fed issued firm indications that interest rates would tick higher over the next 18 months or so. Now, confirmation that interest rates are currently “neutral” would suggest that interest rate rises in the short term have been put on hold. Is the Fed losing control?

    They might stand a chance of putting together a joined up policy if they could control DT - he is the fly in the ointment who keeps going of script.

    I think some people are being a little unfair. The Fed is just reacting to the latest economic indicators and concerns regarding worldwide trade and tariffs. Surely this is what you would expect from the Fed? What would be the point of announcing a new policy months ago only to be blinded to future changes and not react?
