Capstone forex trading news: Fed Deputy Chairman Clarida poured cold water on traders betting on interest rate cuts on Thursday (February 20). Clarida said in an interview with CNBC that he believes that most market participants are not really looking forward to a rate cut. "Market pricing of interest rate cuts is a bit tricky because the market has expectations of interest rates and there may be term and liquidity premiums," Clarida said in an interview with CNBC's Steve Liesman.
According to various indicators, futures contracts show that the Fed will cut interest rates as early as June or July and no later than September.
However, Clarida said that a survey showed that most economists think the Fed will not relax monetary policy this year, and he thinks this view is very important.
He said, "I don't think people will take interest rate cuts into prices, although market prices may show that."
When Clarida spoke, stock futures fell.

However, there is no indication that it will affect policy.
