2022 Midyear Market Outlook

Join BOK Financial investment experts Brian Henderson, Steve Wyett and Cavanal Hill Investment Management President Matt Stephani for their outlook on the domestic and global economy, inflation, and the markets.

The Fed issues first 0.5% rate hike since 2000

On May 4, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) raised the Federal Funds rate by 50 basis points (half a percent)—an increment not seen in two decades. Additionally, the Fed announced that it will start shrinking the central bank's balance sheet in June. Through this process, known as quantitative tightening, the Fed will let the bonds that it holds mature and "roll off" its balance sheet, reducing the money supply in the U.S. economy and scaling back the economic stimulus it provided during the COVID-19 pandemic.
