Video: Fed Wrap – Fed rhetoric remains hawkish – Ryan Weldon
Ryan Weldon, from IFM’s Debt Investments Team in New York, features in our Fed Wrap Market Update videos discussing central bank themes in debt markets, with a particular focus on the US Federal Reserve.
In this edition, Ryan discusses the US Federal Reserve’s decision to raise interest rates by another 75 basis points in November, with inflation continuing to be its main policy target. Ryan also comments on Fed Chair Powell’s suggestion that although it may soon be time to reduce the size of future rate rises, it is premature to be thinking about pausing rate hikes now.
