Today's Headline - Fed Announces 75 BPS Interest Rate Hike; Biggest in 28 Years
On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve announced an interest rate hike of 75 basis points or 0.75% to curb rising inflation. The interest rate hike was the biggest in 28 years. The U.S. central bank also announced that it would continue reducing the size of its balance sheet at the rate announced in May.
Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell stated the central bank will not "declare victory" until officials see "compelling evidence" that inflation is coming down. While interest rate hikes are generally bad news for financial markets, BTC saw a steady price increase in the hours after the news was released. This is most likely due to analysts having already priced in the hike in the days leading up to the meeting.
