S&P and Nasdaq close at record levels

The Fed whittled down to 1 cut in 2024 with the latest dot-plot.

The caveat is the Fed members pre-submitted their dot-plot projections and although they had an opportunity to change those projections, many chose to keep them unchanged despite the better-than-expected CPI data today.

So there may be a dovish tilt down the road if the trend continues from Fed officials, but they also have the option to keep the “rates will remain steady for longer” dialogue. .

For now, however, it is one cut in 2024

The stock market – although off highs – is still closing the S&P and the Nasdaq at record levels. The Dow closed lower on the day.
