Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell indicated Friday that the central bank is likely to begin withdrawing some of its easy-money policies before the end of the year. Rate hikes aren’t imminent as there is still “much ground to cover” before the economy hits full employment. He also believes that not everyone agrees on the current inflation trend, that inflation winds whipping through the U.S. economy this year soon will subside.
For the job market, Powell said employment gains have come faster than expected, although the Delta variant presents a near-term risk for full employment.

Loans are subject to credit and collateral approval. Advertised rates are based on a set of loan assumptions including a borrower with excellent credit history and optimal loan characteristics. Your final interest rate and annual percentage rate (APR) may differ depending on your individual transaction’s specific characteristics, and certain products may not be available for your situation. Several determining factors include, but are not limited to, the state of the property location, loan amount, documentation type, loan type, occupancy type, property type, loan to value, and credit score.
APR reflects the cost of credit over the term of the loan expressed as an annual rate. For mortgage loans, APR may include the interest rate, discount points (also referred to as “points”), and other charges or fees (such as mortgage insurance and origination fees), but does not necessarily take into account other loan-specific finance charges you may be required to pay.
