Where can I find income with the Fed on hold?
As expected, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) left interest rates unchanged at the March meeting. More importantly, however, they adjusted their forecasts to now show no interest rates hikes in 2019, one in 2020, and none in 2021. Interest rates moved lower in light of this new information, leaving investors facing the same issue of where to find income in an environment of historically low real and nominal yields.
No rate hikes this year?!?
