Financial markets have diverged from the Federal Reserve regarding the outlook for US interest rates in 2019, ahead of the central bank’s December board meeting. The general consensus of bond investors is that the Fed will not increase interest rates as rapidly as it has flagged in 2019. Meanwhile, analysts say factors such as the US-China trade war and the downturn in the crude oil price are likely to weigh on the Fed’s monetary policy decision for December.
