Come With Me to the F.O.M.C.: A Sneak Peak Into Fed LifeCommentary by Bob McTeer
October 29, 2008
Today is the second day of a two-day Federal Open Market Committee meeting. The rate decision along with the accompanying verbiage will be released at 2:15 p.m. If I were still there, I'd go in with a tentative idea of how I would vote, but would try to keep an open mind during the presentations and discussions. Today, I would be inclined toward a half percentage point cut, from 1.50 to 1.00 percent.
