Fed Hike aftermath Series: Hike probabilities over next 12 months

Hike probability sharply spiked after last FOMC meeting, where projection material showed that the U.S. Federal Reserve is still projecting one more hike for 2017, which is likely to be December. The November FOMC statement suggests that the Fed is on its path to a hike in December. President Trump has recently announced his pick for Fed Chair and it is Jerome Powell, who will be heading Fed once Yellen’s term expires in February next year.  Current FOMC rate is at 100-125 basis points. (Note, all calculations are based on data as of 6th November)
