Inflation expectations are weakening again, and traders fully priced in a quarter-point rate hike

The drop in inflation expectations from consumers coincides with expectations that the Federal Reserve is likely to give up the level of interest rate hikes within a few weeks, and end them entirely soon.

A University of Michigan consumer survey released Friday showed that one-year inflation expectations fell to 4%, the third consecutive monthly decline and the lowest level since April 2021.

Meanwhile, traders assigned a 94.2% chance of a 0.25 percentage point rate hike on February 1, when the Fed’s next two-day meeting concludes. This marked another smaller move than the 0.5 percentage point rise in December, which itself was a slowdown from four consecutive 0.75 percentage point increases.

“Inflation expectations are well held and improving with pricing pressures weakening across many sectors. The Fed is likely to rise 0.25% at the next meeting later this month,” said LPL Chief Financial Economist Jeffrey Roach. “We shouldn’t be surprised if the Fed starts talking about stopping in the near future.”
