Most Actively Moving Stocks for Wednesday, November 29, 2023

Mounting speculation that the Federal Reserve would cut interest rates as soon as the first quarter of 2024 is lifting the futures market. Billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman said on The David Rubenstein Show that risks are rising for people who have to reprice their debt.

Ackman said that the real risk of a hard landing increases unless the Fed starts cutting rates soon. This view is highly speculative. The Fed is unlikely to cut rates when home prices are still rising. Inflation targeted at 2.0% is not achievable until late 2024.
