Fed Leaves Interest Rates Steady But Keeps Options

 
21.03.07 20:03
#3

The U.S. Federal Reserve held benchmark interest rates steady on Wednesday and said it remained concerned on inflation, but it downgraded its assessment of current economic conditions and left its future policy options open.

The widely expected decision by the central bank's Federal Open Market Committee keeps the overnight federal funds rate target at 5.25%, the level it hit in June after 17 straight quarter-percentage point increases.

In a statement outlining its decision, the Fed dropped a reference that had been contained in its last policy announcement to the possibility of further "firming" of monetary policy, saying simply: "Further policy adjustments will depend on the evolution of the outlook."

In addition, the central bank offered a nod to recent signs suggesting the economy is moving ahead only slowly.

"Recent indicators have been mixed and the adjustment in the housing sector is ongoing," the Fed said. "Nevertheless, the economy seems likely to continue to expand at a moderate pace over coming quarters."

Prices for U.S. stocks and government bonds rose, while the dollar fell, as traders in financial markets saw the Fed's shifts in language opening the door to possible rate cuts later in the year.

Still, the Fed said it had not put away its inflation concerns. "The committee's predominant policy concern remains the risk that inflation will fail to moderate as expected," it said.

"More Good Than Bad"

"On balance I think there was more good than bad in the statement," Arthur Hogan, managing director at Jefferies, told CNBC.com. "The Fed sort of leaned in the direction that inflation will ease moving forward and that was reassuring.  There was enough balance in the statement to indicated that the Fed is as likely to ease as tighten."

At its previous meeting in January, the central bank had said growth was looking "somewhat firmer." Since then, however, a jump in default rates for mortgages held by less-creditworthy borrowers has sparked worry that mainstream lenders might start having trouble and that it might become more difficult for households and businesses to borrow.

Beyond the subprime sector, there has been little to support the view that housing markets were stabilizing, as the Fed had believed.

A report three weeks ago showed sales of new homes had tumbled almost 17% in January, the largest slide in 13 years, while data this week showed that permits for future home building fell in February.

Meanwhile, a sharp sell-off of U.S. stocks late last month added to worries that consumers, already feeling pinched by stagnating or falling home values, might rein in spending, putting an additional drag on the economy.

Worries About Inflation

Against evidence of weaker growth, there was scant reassurance inflation was moderating as the central bank had hoped.

The 12-month change in the so-called PCE price index, the inflation measure preferred by Fed policy-makers, moved up to 2.3 percent in January from 2.2% in December, above the 1% to 2% comfort zone of many officials.

The Federal Reserve left a key interest rate unchanged on Wednesday while taking note of the recent weaker economic performance and higher inflation pressures.

The central bank voted to leave the federal funds rate, the interest that banks charge each other, at 5.25%. It marked the sixth straight meeting in which the Fed has kept the rate the same.

As it has at previous meetings, the Fed said it was more worried about the risk of inflation than weak economic growth. But this time it dropped language that talked solely about the possibility that interest rates would be increased in the future.

Economists believe it is highly unlikely that the Fed will boost rates in coming months, given troubles in the housing industry and sluggish economic growth.

Subprime Market Jitters Subside As Two Lenders Find FundingSectors:Financial ServicesCompanies:Wells Fargo and Co | Accredited Home Lenders Holding Company | Fremont General CorpBy Reuters | 21 Mar 2007 | 03:19 PM

Fears that turbulence in the high-risk mortgage market would spread eased on Wednesday after two lenders managed to secure enough money to stay afloat.

Fremont General announced it is selling $4 billion of subprime residential loans to an unidentified buyer, a move that drove its battered stock up

"That consolidation effort makes it less of a contagion," said Mark Ficke, head of U.S. government bond trading at BNP Paribas in New York.

Still, troubled lenders were paying a steep price for their newfound cash.

Accredited will pay a hefty 13% annual interest to Farallon Capital Management, a San Francisco hedge fund that has offered the company a five-year loan for $200 million. Fremont itself acknowledged it was taking a $140 million pre-tax hit on the sale of its loans.

It was too early to say whether such fresh sources of funding would be enough to keep a lid on the housing debacle, which many analysts worry could have a ripple effect through the economy.

Investors are especially keen to hear the Federal Reserve's thinking on the matter, with the release of the central bank's policy statement due out in a few hours.

Preemptively, the bond market turned lower on the idea that limited fallout from the subprime crisis would translate into a resilient economy that did not require any additional monetary stimulus.

The latest data hardly pointed to economic acceleration, though, with U.S. mortgage applications slipping even as interest rates hovered near recent lows.

More Subprime Oversight Sought

As the troubles in the subprime market simmered, politicians in Washington have been calling for greater oversight, with a congressional panel expected to hold a hearing on the matter on Thursday.

But executives from New Century Mortgage refused to testify at a Senate Banking Committee hearing on the issue, although executives from four other major subprime lenders are expected to make an appearance. New Century's stock is down almost 18% at $1.39 on the Pink Sheets.

Subprime lenders are struggling because of rising delinquencies and defaults, and in many cases because they lowered their underwriting standards too far. Many, including Fremont, have announced plans to cut jobs.

The layoffs have extended beyond the subprime sector, however, affecting larger banks like Wells Fargo. The fifth-largest U.S. bank said on Tuesday it was eliminating 121 jobs in Tempe, Ariz., in a unit that offers mortgages to higher-risk borrowers.

Wells Fargo's cuts are on top of 323 previously announced job cuts in the home loan unit, including 252 in Fort Mill, S.C., and 71 in Concord, Calif.. Wells Fargo shares slipped

Asian stocks rallied to fresh three-week highs in the afternoon session Thursday, led by blue chips and exporters as investors toyed with the prospect of interest rate cuts in the world's biggest economy, Asia's top export market.

The U.S. Federal Reserve, kept its benchmark overnight rates unchanged at 5.25% after its policy-setting meeting Wednesday, dropped an explicit reference to the possibility of taking rates higher in its statement, sparking a surge on Wall Street.

Australia's S&P/ASX 200 Index were sharply higher, tracking a rally on Wall Street as investors bet that an interest rate cut in the world's biggest economy may be near, with the top banks and miners leading gains.

Hong Kong stocks climbed as the Fed's softening bias toward higher interest rates helped push up rate-sensitive property stocks. HSBC Holdings leapt amid tentative signs of progress in the subprime mortgage crisis. Chinese shares were also higher led by blue chips.

Dow Moves Into Positive Territory As Energy Stocks Rally On Higher CrudeTopics:Economy (U.S.) | Economy (Global) | Market Outlook | Currencies | The Bond Report | Stock MarketSectors:Oil and GasBy CNBC.com | 22 Mar 2007 | 12:19 PM

Stocks were mixed at midday and the Dow moved into positive territory as energy stocks were boosted by rising crude oil prices.

"I think the market has gone from worrying about the Fed, which is what we saw yesterday," said Stephen Wood, portfolio strategist at Russell Investment Group. "We're already worrying about earnings, which is what analysts and portfolio managers should be doing."

The major markets spent the bulk of the morning's trade in negative territory due to a weak sales forecast from Motorola, which sparked declines in the tech sector.

Energy was the biggest S&P sector winner on Thursday as oil prices continued to rally, while technology was by far the worst performing S&P 500 sector. Financial stocks were also trading lower.

"There are a lot of folks that didn't think the market should have reacted the way it did to the Fed's message yesterday," said Ted Weisberg, president of Seaport Securities. "But clearly, the message was a shot in the arm for the market and, in particular, for the financials.  It's almost as the financials go, so goes the market."
