/*============================================= = Thursday, June 17, 2021 = =============================================*/ Futures Up/Down % Last Dow -110.00 0.32% 33,795 S&P 500 -16.25 0.39% 4,196 Nasdaq -87.50 0.63% 13,885 U.S. stock futures are lower, with major averages looking to open down between -0.3% and -0.6% after the Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged on Wednesday but signaled it expected to boost interest rates two times by the end of 2023, earlier than Wall Street had anticipated. Treasury yields ended higher yesterday, as the 10-year holding around the 1.57% level (up roughly 8 bps prior to the Fed announcement). The number of Fed governors who expect rate hikes as early as 2022 – known as the dot plot – went to seven from four, essentially translating into two rate hikes in 2023 based on growth and inflation projections from the 18 members of the FOMC as the economy recovers rapidly from the effects of the pandemic and inflation heats up. Banking shares rally, however, as bond yields rise, with the 10-year Treasury hitting 1.55%. Chairman Jerome Powell also said officials discussed an eventual reduction of bond-buying, though the timing of such a move remains uncertain.
