Commerzbank’s remarks echoed that of the Fed chairman Jerome Powell who downplayed the risk of a suffered uptick in inflation, and reiterated that present policy that is monetary are appropriate.
“there is valid reason to believe we are going to start to make more progress. But even if it occurs, it’s prone to take the time to reach significant progress that is further or rates of interest to increase interest levels above zero,” Powell said on Thursday.
