FOMC meeting, Fed Chairman's LIVE Press Conference Sep 26

Fed Chairman Powell
FOMC meeting on September 25-26, 2018: this meeting is associated with a Summary of Economic Projections and a press conference by the Federal Reserve Chair Jerome ("Jay") Powell. Expect a 25 basis point increase to a 2.00% - 2.25% target for the fed funds rate. Fed Funds Futures odds here.

The 2:30 pm EDT press conference may include questions about trade policy although Chair Powell has avoided this issue in the past. Will tariffs cause inflation, increasing the need for more rate hikes, or chill spending and capital investment, negating further need for higher interest rates?
