|Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Wednesday expressed worry on the state of U.S. employment, saying that continued aggressive policy support is needed to fix the various issues still facing job markets. Despite an unemployment rate that has fallen to 6.3%, Powell said the employment picture is “a long way” from where it needs to be. He also noted that the actual unemployment rate is probably closer to 10% and said the Fed needs to stay focused on its “broad and inclusive” employment goal.
The central bank won’t have to worry about inflation getting in its way anytime soon, according to Philadelphia Federal Reserve President Patrick Harker on Thursday. The FOMC adopted a policy of flexible average inflation targeting, meaning that inflation can run above 2% for a while before the Fed will step in with rate increases.
The Fed will be purchasing up to $5.3B in mortgage-backed-securities today. Yields are climbing and the 10-year Note is approaching 1.20%, applying selling pressure on Mortgage Bonds.
