Options-Based Expectations of Future Policy Rates

Posted September 29, 2014

Forecasts of short-term interest rates that are based on futures rates in financial markets can be very misleading when the policy rate is near the zero lower bound. By contrast, options on future short-term interest rates can provide more accurate projections. Currently these options suggest that investors believe the federal funds rate is most likely to lift off from zero around mid-2015 and rise only slowly afterwards.
