Fed Leaves Rate Unchanged as Yellen Departs; Sets Up March Hike
Thursday, 1 February 2018 02:14 WIB | FISCAL & MONETARY |Federal ReserveThe FedEkonomi AS

Federal Reserve officials, meeting for the last time under Chair Janet Yellen, left borrowing costs unchanged while adding emphasis to their plan for more hikes, setting the stage for an increase in March under her successor Jerome Powell.

œThe committee expects that economic conditions will evolve in a manner that will warrant further gradual increases in the federal funds rate, the policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee said in a statement Wednesday in Washington, adding the word œfurther twice to previous language.

The changes to the statement, collectively acknowledging stronger growth and more confidence that inflation will rise to the 2 percent target, may spur speculation that the Fed will pick up the pace of interest-rate increases. Officials also said inflation œis expected to move up this year and to stabilize around the goal, in phrasing that marked an upgrade from December.

At the same time, the Fed repeated language saying that œnear-term risks to the economic outlook appear roughly balanced.

With her term ending later this week after President Donald Trump chose to replace her, Yellen is handing the reins to Powell, who has backed her gradual approach and is widely expected to raise interest rates at the FOMC's next meeting for the sixth time since late 2015. Fed officials are hoping to keep a tight labor market from overheating without raising borrowing costs so fast that it would stifle the economy.

œGains in employment, household spending and business fixed investment have been solid, and the unemployment rate has stayed low, the Fed said, removing previous references to disruptions from hurricanes. œMarket-based measures of inflation compensation have increased in recent months but remain low.
