The Fed cut rates by 25 basis points, officially ending this phase of the hiking cycle. The importance of the move lies in its message about the future path of rates. Given that the markets have been pricing a reversal for a long time, this is not too surprising.

Note: if you want to post comments from Apple devices (iPhone, iPad), you apparently need to turn off "prevent cross-site tracking" in Safari privacy settings. (The reason presumably is that another URL handles comments, and so the user session needs to be preserved when redirected to that site. I don't like this, but this is not enough to make me switch my hosting service.)
