Data from CME Group shows that most futures market traders expect the US Federal Reserve to increase interest rates in June, after the central bank left the cash rate on hold in May. However, futures traders rate the chances of monetary policy being tightened two more times beyond June at almost 50 per cent. The Federal Reserve has signalled that it will increase the cash rate gradually, despite recent data showing that inflation has reached its target of two per cent.
