Fed Announces Another Interest Rate Cut

News Flash: Fed Cuts Interest Rate Again

The Federal Reserve cut its federal funds rate this afternoon to 2.25 percent, making its sixth cut in the last six months. A weakening labor market, slowdown in consumer spending, a loss of confidence and crisis in financial markets, and a tight credit market were reasons the Fed used to support this most recent cut. Acknowledging the issues of inflationary pressures alongside a slowing economy, they stated "Uncertainty about the inflation outlook has increased. It will be necessary to continue to monitor inflation developments carefully.”
