The Fed will move “cautiously” on interest rate cuts, Powell told 60 Minutes

In an interview with CBS' 60 Minutes on Sunday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said the Fed would move “cautiously” on cutting interest rates and suggested the market might be betting on too many cuts.

“We want to see more evidence that inflation is moving sustainably toward 2%,” Powell added. “Our confidence is rising. We just want a little more confidence before we take that very important step of starting to cut interest rates,” Powell told Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, according to a CBS transcript.

“We will update [the outlook] At the March meeting. “I will say, though, that nothing has happened in the meantime that would lead me to believe that people will change their expectations significantly,” Powell added.
