The complete 2024 Fed meeting schedule with all upcoming dates

The Federal Reserve System (Fed) meeting schedule, i.e., the central bank of the United States, has eight annual conferences. These meetings are the equivalent of the meetings of our ECB (here, it is calendar 2024), where monetary policy decisions are made. They are widely followed events because they can influence the course of the financial markets and, in recent times, have become real turning points for the future of the global economy.

Fed meetings: what is decided and by whom 

Before discovering the 2024 Fed meetings calendar, let us see how these appointments work. 

The FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) is the Fed’s operating body and mouthpiece and chairs the meetings. This is comprised of 12 members, including US central bankers and the Fed Chairman. 

The FOMC assesses the financial conditions and monetary policy actions needed to achieve US economic objectives. The interest rate decision was the most decisive factor in this high-inflation period. 

At each Fed meeting on the calendar, a summary of economic projections and the Dot Plot, a chart showing each Fed member’s anonymous forecast of the Fed funds rate position for the past year, the future and the long term, are presented. These appointments are highlighted in the calendar with an asterisk. 

Here is an example of a Dot Plot chart published at the December 2022 Fed meeting.
