Tomorrow the Federal Reserve is expected to announce their decision to raise short-term interest rates by 75 basis points.

They are also expected to give indication they could begin slowing down the size of their rate hikes in December.

Then, when it comes to December’s meeting there are expectations they will raise again, but by 50 basis points.

The thing to be on the lookout for is what they say about their conviction for fighting off inflation and how that is interpreted.  The concern is will they continue to aggressively work to stave off inflation at the risk of triggering a recession.

How the markets react to Fed Chair Powell’s commentary following the announced rate hike is more important than the amount of the hike itself.

Here are the two lists of Unusually High Call and Put Option volume ahead of tomorrow’s Fed decision.
