PUBLISHED TUE, MAY 3 2022 | by Patti Domm | CNBC

KEY POINTS:

  • The Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates Wednesday for the second time since 2018, boosting the fed funds target rate by a half-percentage point.
  • The central bank is also expected to launch a program to reduce its massive bond holdings by $95 billion a month, starting in June.
  • The markets are braced for a hawkish Fed, but many investors are wondering if Fed Chair Jerome Powell will signal that the central bank is willing to get even tougher with rate increases.
