Sorry Savers, Brexit Kills Any More Rate Hikes in 2016
Hopes were high for savers late last year when the Fed increased the fed funds rate for the first time in nearly a decade. The rate hike of 25 basis points in December 2015 was expected to be the first of many hikes to come. In the Fed's economic predictions for 2016, a majority of Fed participants expected four rate hikes in 2016.
Savers finally had reason to be hopeful that deposit rates would move higher in 2016, then came reality. The second rate hike looked like it would happen during the Fed's March meeting. During the Fed's March meeting, slowing economies worldwide spooked the markets and the Fed declined to raise the fed funds rate.
The Fed also decided not to hike rates during April meeting due to economic uncertainty. June's meeting started to look like another rate hike would come but a disappointing jobs report nixed that increase. A mere 38,000 jobs were created in May, much lower than the forecast of 175,000.
The latest disappointing news that will prevent the Fed from hiking the rate is UK voters voting to leave the European Union. Ben Bernanke, the former Fed Chairman, wrote on his Brookings blog "clearly the Fed and other U.S. policymakers will remain cautious until the effects of the British vote are better sorted out."
There's no telling how long it will take for the ramifications of Brexit to be fully realized but fed fund rate hikes in 2016 are not going to happen. The latest nail in the coffin for rate hikes will leave savers with the same low deposit rates they have been coping with since the financial crisis of 2007/2008.
On a positive note, savings rates and money market rates haven't moved lower since the Brexit vote last Thursday. The same can't be said for U.S. Bond yields. Last Wednesday, 10 year bond yields were at 1.73 percent, yesterday 10 year yields fell to 1.46 percent. Listed below are yesterday's closing bond yields, the best savings rates and money market rates available in our database of rates.

Will Deposit Rates Move Higher When the Fed Meets in June?
The Federal Open Market Committee is scheduled to meet next month to decide the direction of monetary policy. All eyes will be on the Fed to see if they announce a federal funds rate hike. While a rate hike is more likely to happen next month than it was a few weeks ago, it still might not happen.
The CME Group's FedWatch Tool currently has a 64.4 percent chance that the rate will remain at 0.50 percent. There is only a 35.6 percent chance that the rate will be increased 25 basis points to 0.75 percent. The 35.6 percent chance of an increase is actually up from 30 percent a day ago.
Even if the Fed does raise the rate, it's not a foregone conclusion that banks will increase deposit rates. As the Fed increases the fed funds rate, banks will be under pressure to increase deposit rates. Banks that are interested in growing their deposits will feel that pressure.
We look for online banks to lead the pack in raising deposit rates. Online banks such as Synchrony Bank, Sallie Mae, and Ally Bank will probably be the first to increase savings rates and money market rates. The FedWatch Tool has a 38 percent probability of a fed funds rate of 0.75 percent and a 30.7 percent probability of 1.00 percent fed funds rate by the end of 2016. A 1.00 percent fed funds rate will probably drive the top savings and money market rates towards 1.50 percent.
The last time the Fed released their own projection materials was back in March. Their forecast for the fed funds rate is for it to be at 0.90 percent at the end of 2016. The rate is also forecast to move higher in the coming years. By the end of 2017, the rate is forecast to be at 1.90 percent and at the end of 2018, the rate is forecast to be at 3.00 percent.
The Fed is also scheduled to release new projection materials after their June meeting. It will be interesting to see if the June projection materials are forecasting a higher or lower rate. When you compare the last two projections, December 2015 and March 2016, fed fund rate forecasts have been lowered by 50 basis points. PCE inflation for 2016 has also fallen from 1.9 to 1.6 percent.
Even if the Fed does increase the fed funds rate by 25 basis points, it's still unlikely one of the online banks will increase their deposit rates. If the fed funds rate is increased 25 basis points, don't expect a similar 25 basis point deposit rate increase. 5 basis points or 10 basis points will probably be the maximum we will see.Read more...
