The Federal Fund Rate in 4 Minutes
"The Federal Fund Rate is the interest rate at which depository institutions lend reserve balances to other depository institutions overnight, on an uncollateralized basis.” What the f*ck? Yeah. I don’t get it either. Subscribe To My Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoFWz1e3VXKOoJ-E5cep1Eg Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thought.monkey/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Thought.Monkey.Community/ Music Credits: George Fields - Understand Script: Ok. First what is an interest rate? An interest rate is a percent of a loan that is given out which is charged to the person or institution borrowing money. So for example if Bob wants to buy a house and takes out a loan of 100,000 dollars from Wells Fargo Bank, Wells Fargo may charge him an extra 5% of that $100,000 dollars to take the loan out - meaning that Bob actually owes the bank $105,000. The federal interest rate – also known as the federal fund rate – is the interest rate that banks charge each other for taking out overnight loans to meet their reserve requirement. The reserve requirement is something made by the Fed that tells banks how much money they have to keep in their reserves. It’s usually about 10% of all deposits that bank customers make. So for every $100 dollars you deposit into your Bank of America account, B-of-A must only hold on to $10 dollars of it. What happens to the other $90? This is how banks make their money. They lend that money out to customers who may be looking for a new house, tuition for college, a new car or even to other banks and sometimes even to the government. Of course they charge interest rates on the money that you’ve given to them to lend out and they make money on your money. So what happens when a bunch of customers go to the bank and want a lot of money and the bank doesn’t have enough in its reserves to give it out? Well, when this happens banks can borrow money from the Fed or other banks that hold their reserves at the Fed. If the borrowing bank borrows from the Fed they are charged something called the discount rate - which is the same thing as an interest rate. If the borrowing bank borrows from another bank that keeps its money at the Fed it’s called the Federal Funds Rate – again the same thing as an interest rate. So let’s say Wells Fargo runs out of money today because so many of its customers want to buy the new Call of Duty game that came out. Wells Fargo then will borrow money from another bank, say Bank of America, and be charged whatever the Federal Funds Rate is. Theoretically Wells Fargo will have to pay B-of-A back at the given interest rate. So what happens when the Fed raises or lowers its rates? You hear about this in the news all the time and see news anchors freaking out about it on the regular. But why? When the Fed raises its rates it’s usually because it’s afraid of inflation – which is when prices increase while the value of money decreases. For example let’s say a pack of gum costs $1 today but inflation is occurring at 10% annually. In one year that same pack of gum will cost $1.10. You see, after inflation your dollar can’t buy the same pack of gum. Some may think that when the Fed raises its rates it has a direct effect on the stock market. But that’s not the case. The rate simply makes it more expensive for banks to borrow money from the Fed or from each other. Of course, this creates a ripple effect which influences businesses, people and the stock market. Banks will now charge people more to borrow money – so for example mortgages and car loans become more expensive – which decreases the amount of money people have and affects businesses because people will spend less of their hard earned dough. Businesses are affected similarly – borrowing money becomes more expensive and limits business’ potential growth. Further down the ripple the stock market is also affected. When companies are seen as cutting back on its growth spending or are making less profit their stock prices generally drop. If enough companies experience this kind of decline then the entire stock market will go down.

What is the Fed Funds Rate?
Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Fed Funds Rate” In the US, the federal funds rate is "the interest rate" at which depository institutions actively trade balances held at the Federal Reserve, called federal funds, with each other, usually overnight, on an uncollateralized basis. The current Fed funds rate is effectively zero. To combat the financial crisis of 2008, Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke lowered to this level by aggressively dropping it ten times in 14 months. Obviously, this is the lowest the Fed funds rate can go. The highest was 20% in 1979 when former Fed Chair Paul Volcker used it as a tool to combat inflation. For more on the Fed funds rate highs and lows, see Historical Fed Funds Rate. The Fed uses the Fed funds rate as a tool to control U.S. economic growth. That makes it the most important interest rate in the world. Banks use the Fed funds rate to base all other short-term interest rates. That includes LIBOR, which is the interest rate that banks charge each other for one-month, three-month, six-month and one-year loans, and the prime rate, which is the rate banks charge their best customers. That's how it also affects interest rates paid on deposits, bank loans, credit cards, and adjustable-rate mortgages. Longer-term interest rates are indirectly influenced. Usually, investors want a higher rate for a longer-term Treasury note. The yields on Treasury notes drive long term conventional mortgage interest rates. By Barry Norman, Investors Trading Academy

Flow of Money - Fed Funds Market
SUMMARY: What is the Federal Funds Market? How does The Federal Reserve set interest rates? CHALLENGE QUESTIONS: 1) If the Fed Funds Rate has been pushed to zero, and The Fed is supporting the rate by paying interest on reserves, what is the difference between a 1-Year Treasury at 0.25%, and a 1-Year Reserve Deposit at 0.25%? 2) If Treasury only printed money and drove the Fed Funds rate to a permanent zero, would inflation be driven by interest rates, or fiscal policy? CORRECTIONS & AMPLIFICATIONS: 1) In the examples in the video, I set the rate on 1-year Treasuries to the same as the Federal Funds Rate to prove a point that they are closely related. However, both The Fed Funds Rate and Treasuries rate fluctuate in a [narrow] range day-to-day. The Fed Funds Rate might fluctuate between 0.15-0.30%, while the Treasuries rate might fluctuate between 0.25-0.40%. 2) I explain how Treasuries Securities are really only a tool to support the base interest rate. Without Treasury paying interest on Dollar savings, the rate would drop to zero. Another way this is accomplished is by The Fed paying an interest rate on Dollar Savings. Yet, we never hear of any solvency constraint with _debt-dollars_ issued by The Fed - meanwhile, we run in fear when Treasury issues _debt-dollars_. Hint: This is related to Challenge question 1. ;)

Fed Funds Rate
The Fed Funds rate does not immediately impact the average consumer or investor. It is the rate that the banks charge each other for overnight loans. Unless you are a large bank, the Fed Fund rate doesn’t affect your bottom line immediately. However, because this is a base rate for highly credited borrowers, it will slowly trickle through as higher rates to the average consumer. When you see the Fed Funds rate go up or down, you may see your interest rate vary accordingly on something like your mortgage or credit card. Because you are a less credit worthy borrower than a large bank, you will likely pay a higher interest rate off that base. While the Fed Funds rate does not immediately affect you, it most likely will affect you at some point. The Fed Funds rate is also a good way to understand the economy as a whole.

Must the Federal Reserve crimp the recovery to normalize interest rates? | LIVE STREAM
Tight labor markets, low real interest rates, and large federal budget deficits are a textbook recipe for inflation, and yet, inflationary expectations remain contained. Is there a monetary policy that will simultaneously engender robust economic growth and “normalize” interest rates? Can the Fed push interest rates to levels that, when the next recession hits, allow the Fed to stimulate growth by lowering rates, or will the required rate hikes stifle growth? Are the odds of success improved by the Fed’s postcrisis policy of paying interest on bank reserves (IOR)? Or should the Fed phase out IOR, abandon rate normalization, and use negative interest rates in the next recession? Join AEI and a panel of experts to discuss these important issues.

March Fed Funds Rate - Comes in Like a Lion and Out With a Hike - 03/03/2017
Chairwoman Janet Yellen today eluded to the fact that an interest rate hike this month is almost a certainty. With absolute clarity, she spoke about the outcome of this month’s FOMC meeting indicating that a, “March hike is likely appropriate if the economy evolves as expected.” Speaking to the Economic Club of Chicago, one of her strongest statements announcing a rate hike was, “Indeed, at our meeting later this month, the Committee will evaluate whether employment and inflation are continuing to evolve in line with our expectations, in which case a further adjustment of the federal funds rate would likely be appropriate.” The next FOMC meeting will be held March 14 -15, and over this last week, the probability of a rate hike has jumped up exponentially. Fed Funds Futures, which creates the market-based odds, is now predicting a 97.1% probability that there will be an interest rate increase this month. Yesterday, Fed Funds Futures was predicting that there was a 78% likelihood of an interest rate hike in March, a 12% increase from earlier in the week. Now it must be noted that the investment public at large, including professional analysts and traders, have read the tea leaves wrong on a number of important issues recently. These missteps include the referendum vote on Brexit in England, as well as our most recent presidential election. However, in the case of the interest rate hike, they might have actually gotten it right. A March Hike Is Now Factored into Market Pricing At this point, it seems that an interest rate hike this month is pretty much factored into the markets. Gold was under dramatic pressure yesterday and even traded to an intraday low today of 1223. But as Yellen spoke, gold actually firmed, closing modestly higher at 1235.70, (April Comex futures contract) up $2.80 on the day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which had been trading nominally lower for the morning session, also recovered immediately following Yellen’s statements and closed fractionally higher at just above 21,000. As reported in Newsweek, “A rate hike isn’t just baked into the cake, the cake is practically decorated and ready to have the candles lit," said Brian Jacobsen, chief portfolio strategist at Wells Fargo Funds Management in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. More so, recent market reactions to Fed statements are supportive of this assumption. Wishing you as always, good trading, Gary S. Wagner - Executive Producer

How Does the Fed Control Money Supply, Interest Rates, Inflation, Fed Funds Rate? (1994)
In the United States, federal funds are overnight borrowings between banks and other entities to maintain their bank reserves at the Federal Reserve. Banks keep reserves at Federal Reserve Banks to meet their reserve requirements and to clear financial transactions. Transactions in the federal funds market enable depository institutions with reserve balances in excess of reserve requirements to lend reserves to institutions with reserve deficiencies. These loans are usually made for one day only, that is, "overnight". The interest rate at which these deals are done is called the federal funds rate. Federal funds are not collateralized; like eurodollars, they are an unsecured interbank loan.[1] Federal funds transactions by regulated financial institutions neither increase nor decrease total bank reserves. Instead, they redistribute reserves. Before 2008, this meant that otherwise idle funds could yield a return. (Since 2008,the Fed has paid interest on reserves, including excess reserves.) Banks may borrow these funds to avoid an overdraft (that is, the balance going below reserve requirement) of their reserve account, or in order to meet the reserves required to back their deposits. Federal funds are definitive money, meaning that they are available for immediate spending, while checks and many other forms of money must be cleared by banks and typically take several days before becoming available for spending. Participants in the federal funds market include commercial banks, savings and loan associations, government-sponsored enterprises, branches of foreign banks in the United States, federal agencies, and securities firms. Many relatively small institutions that accumulate reserves in excess of their requirements lend reserves overnight to money center and large regional banks, as well as to foreign banks operating in the United States. Federal agencies also lend idle funds in the federal funds market. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_funds The Federal Banking Agency Audit Act, enacted in 1978 as Public Law 95-320 and 31 U.S.C. section 714 establish that the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Reserve banks may be audited by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).[38] The GAO has authority to audit check-processing, currency storage and shipments, and some regulatory and bank examination functions, however there are restrictions to what the GAO may audit. Audits of the Reserve Board and Federal Reserve banks may not include: transactions for or with a foreign central bank or government, or nonprivate international financing organization; deliberations, decisions, or actions on monetary policy matters; transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee; or a part of a discussion or communication among or between members of the Board of Governors and officers and employees of the Federal Reserve System related to items (1), (2), or (3).[39][40] The financial crisis which began in 2007, corporate bailouts, and concerns over the Fed's secrecy have brought renewed concern regarding ability of the Fed to effectively manage the national monetary system.[41] A July 2009 Gallup Poll found only 30% of Americans thought the Fed was doing a good or excellent job, a rating even lower than that for the Internal Revenue Service, which drew praise from 40%.[42] The Federal Reserve Transparency Act was introduced by congressman Ron Paul in order to obtain a more detailed audit of the Fed. The Fed has since hired Linda Robertson who headed the Washington lobbying office of Enron Corp. and was adviser to all three of the Clinton administration's Treasury secretaries.[43][44][45][46] The Board of Governors in the Federal Reserve System has a number of supervisory and regulatory responsibilities in the U.S. banking system, but not complete responsibility. A general description of the types of regulation and supervision involved in the U.S. banking system is given by the Federal Reserve:[47] The Board also plays a major role in the supervision and regulation of the U.S. banking system. It has supervisory responsibilities for state-chartered banks[48] that are members of the Federal Reserve System, bank holding companies (companies that control banks), the foreign activities of member banks, the U.S. activities of foreign banks, and Edge Act and "agreement corporations" (limited-purpose institutions that engage in a foreign banking business). The Board and, under delegated authority, the Federal Reserve Banks, supervise approximately 900 state member banks and 5,000 bank holding companies. Other federal agencies also serve as the primary federal supervisors of commercial banks; the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency supervises national banks, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation supervises state banks that are not members of the Federal Reserve System. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Reserve_System

You will also learn how to know when the stock market is likely to peak... before it happens and thus be ready to short S&P futures or to buy a safe heaven currency. We also spend a half hour discussing how to use the Fed Funds Futures market to analysis the implied probability of a rise in interest rates by the Federal Reserve. You will learn how to analyze price differentials between various futures contracts to see what the interest rate will likely be in the near future. In this example, I show you why the professional market assumes a 25% chance of a hike by the Fed at tomorrow's FOMC meeting... but more importantly, I show you how that assumption is calculated.

The foreign exchange market (or "forex" for short) is the biggest financial market in the world, with over $4 trillion worth of transactions occurring every day. Simply, forex is the market in which currencies, or money, are traded in the interbanking system. Forex Tutorial: What is Forex Trading? By Investopedia Staff What Is Forex? The foreign exchange market is the "place" where currencies are traded. Currencies are important to most people around the world, whether they realize it or not, because currencies need to be exchanged in order to conduct foreign trade and business. If you are living in the U.S. and want to buy cheese from France, either you or the company that you buy the cheese from has to pay the French for the cheese in euros (EUR). This means that the U.S. importer would have to exchange the equivalent value of U.S. dollars (USD) into euros. The same goes for traveling. A French tourist in Egypt can't pay in euros to see the pyramids because it's not the locally accepted currency. As such, the tourist has to exchange the euros for the local currency, in this case the Egyptian pound, at the current exchange rate. What is the spot market? More specifically, the spot market is where currencies are bought and sold according to the current price. That price, determined by supply and demand, is a reflection of many things, including current interest rates, economic performance, sentiment towards ongoing political situations (both locally and internationally), as well as the perception of the future performance of one currency against another. When a deal is finalized, this is known as a "spot deal". It is a bilateral transaction by which one party delivers an agreed-upon currency amount to the counter party and receives a specified amount of another currency at the agreed-upon exchange rate value. After a position is closed, the settlement is in cash. Although the spot market is commonly known as one that deals with transactions in the present (rather than the future), these trades actually take two days for settlement. VIX is a trademarked ticker symbol for the CBOE Volatility Index, a popular measure of the implied volatility of S&P 500 index options; the VIX is calculated by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE). Often referred to as the fear index or the fear gauge, the VIX represents one measure of the market's expectation of stock market volatility over the next 30-day period.] The VIX is quoted in percentage points and translates, roughly, to the expected movement in the S&P 500 index over the upcoming 30-day period, which is then annualized. "VIX" is a registered trademark of the CBOE.[4] The VIX is calculated as the square root of the par variance swap rate for a 30 day term[clarify] initiated today. Note that you'll see the terms: FX, forex, foreign-exchange market and currency market. These terms are synonymous and all refer to the forex market.
