Is rate cut a given next week?

  1. You know Benny is super conservative. I have a fear he may stay put next week and do nothing. The market will then start tanking again. Any thoughts?

    market is very confused about the meeting

    there are bets being placed on anything from another 75bps cut to no cut

    highest probability trade being placed is 50 bps cut, followed by 25 bps cut

    .25 is the most he will move, .50 and look out below, you think inflation is bad now wait and see what its like in 12-18 months. I dont think he can move .50, to risky if you ask me.
  5. i hope that stupid ass cuts another 50 or better :p

    yeah no rate cut and the market will throw a temper tantrum.

    In fact a 25 bps rate cut will probably cause a minor temper tantrum.

    once u give the baby what he wants, you set a precedent, lol

    I really dont buy that, 7 billion in the scheme of world markets is tiny.

    the whole story from start to finish is very suspicous.

    how is it even possible for a company to not notice 7 billion of its money moving around.

    if i had an account at that bank i would close it IMMEDIATELY, because the bank is either dishonsest or run by retards, but probably both
