Should Stock Market Investors Worry About Inflation?
Inflation Expectations, FOMC Meetings, and Investor Anticipation
Paul Hoffman, Managing Editor, Channelchek • March 16, 2021
The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) holds eight regularly scheduled meetings during the year to take the pulse of economic measures that it’s targeting and to adjust policy when necessary. The FOMC has at times added phone or in-person meetings in-between those regularly scheduled. In 2021 all eight of the meetings are held over two days. A statement is expected after each meeting from which Fed-watchers and investors pick over even the smallest word change from the previous statement to base their reaction.
