Federal Reserve Latest News: As the Fed Meets, the Risks are Skewed in Bond Market's Favour

It's been a simple equation so far in July: the bond market has rallied when the Federal Reserve has spoken. Stock index futures edged higher as investors braced for housing and consumer data in a week packed with economic numbers. Volume was expected to be subdued before the Federal Reserve statement on Wednesday at the end of a two-day meeting of policymakers. The Fed's Open Market Committee's statement will be combed for hints of when the central bank may begin to scale back its $85 billion a month in asset purchases aimed at stimulating the economy. Economic growth probably slowed sharply in the second quarter, but its pace is unlikely to change views that the Federal Reserve will start trimming bond purchases later this year. The slowdown is expected to be temporary, with an acceleration in output forecast for the rest of 2013 as the drag from higher taxes and deep budget cuts wanes.
