An increase of 100 basis points is also “a non-trivial risk,” chief US economist Michael Feroli said in a note Monday.
Feroli also cited a Wall Street Journal report on Monday saying Fed officials were likely to consider a 75 basis-point move. Previously, the Fed had signaled it would probably raise borrowing costs by 50 basis points at this month’s gathering.
The Fed’s target rate for its benchmark stands at a range of 0.75% to 1% following a half-point increase in May.
