Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker said yesterday that he sees two more rate hike this year. He noted it’s “prudent to continue to move away from the zero lower bound”. And Inflation “does seem to be moving toward 2%”. He added that there is “not much slack in the labor markets”. Hence, it’s appropriate to continue rate hikes “judiciously”.
And if there is an “acceleration of inflation”, then he “supportive of a third”. Though, he is not yet seeing a “rapid acceleration” in inflation yet.
