Central bank officials say they are in a ‘wait and see mode’ on interest rates

Federal Reserve regional heads Neel Kashkari of Minneapolis and Austin Goolsbee of Chicago said they are taking a more patient approach to monetary policy as they weigh this year’s surprisingly strong inflation data.

“I’m in a wait-and-see mode. We’ll get a lot more data to see if this inflation continues or if it stops,” Kashkari said during a joint live interview on CNBC. “We are all committed to getting inflation back to the central bank’s 2% target”.

Goolsbee pointed to faster inflation in 2023 and said he hoped it could resume following the sticky upward trend seen so far this year.

“I don’t like having our hands tied somewhat when we’re going to get a lot of data and important information before the next meeting, much less the rest of the year,” he said. “The data hounds are going to have to do some sniffing and figure out, are we going to go down a path similar to what we saw last year, where inflation fell in a year without a recession? Or did we do something? Use all our good luck, and is this bump from the start of the year really a sign of overheating?”

“This 10-index-point decline is statistically significant and brings sentiment to its lowest reading in six months,” Consumer Survey Director Jon Hsu said in a statement.

“While consumers have been reserving judgment for the past few months, they are now sensing negative developments on multiple dimensions. They are concerned that inflation, unemployment and interest rates could all move in an unfavorable direction in the coming year,” Hsu added. .

Year-on-year inflation expectations rose to 3.5% from 3.2%. Long-term ratings also rose from 3% to 31%.
