Charles Evans, president of the Chicago Fed talked about Fed interest rate hikes this year in a conference held in London. “While the fundamentals for U.S. growth continue to be good, uncertainty and risks remain. In my opinion, the continuation of ‘wait and see’ monetary policy response is appropriate to ensure that economic growth continues. Overshooting a little bit just to make sure you get to 2 percent strikes me as being quite sensible” said Evans.
