US: Fed call changed to a 100bps rate cut – Standard Chartered

Strategists at Standard Chartered Bank have changed their Fed call and are now expecting a bigger rate cut at the next FOMC meeting on 18 March. 

Key quotes 

“We now expect a 100bps cut at the March FOMC (versus our previous call of 25bps). We are sceptical that such deep rate cuts are necessary or sufficient as a policy response, but we doubt that the Fed will risk under-delivering.”
