Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell is likely to take a tough stance against inflation in his Jackson Hole speech on Friday, according to Wolfe Research.
“We expect Powell to appear more hawkish at Jackson Hole,” Chris Sinek of Wolfe Research wrote in a note on Monday.
“As we discussed at length previously, we believe the Fed will have to raise the Fed funds rate to 4.5%+ to put inflation on a sustainable path back toward the FOMC’s 2% long-term goal,” he added.
