The Fed raises interest rates, with two more increases expected in 2018

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The Federal Reserve on Wednesday lifted a key short-term U.S. interest rate and stuck to its prior forecast of three rate hikes in 2018, deciding for now to wait until next year to take a more aggressive approach. The central bank's policy-making arm lifted the fed funds rate to a range of 1.5% to 1.75% and indicated it's still on track to boost rates three times this year. Yet the Fed projected another three rate hikes in 2019 instead of the previous two. By the end of 2019, the Fed expects its benchmark rate to hit 2.9% vs. a prior 2.7%. While the Fed predicts the economy will grow even faster in the next two years than it previously estimated, the bank left its PCE inflation forecasts unchanged at 1.9% in 2018 and 2% in 2019. The vote was unanimous.
