(Reuters) – Traders of futures contracts tied to the Federal Reserve’s policy rate were betting Friday on another, even bigger reduction to borrowing costs at the U.S. central bank’s mid-March meeting.
The Fed this week delivered an emergency half a percentage point rate cut to help shield the U.S. economy from the effects of the new coronavirus. Prices in rate futures show traders now see a 59% chance of a 0.75 percentage point rate cut coming by the March 17-18 meeting.
