Federal Reserve Board chairman continues testimony before Congress.
Federal Reserve Board chairman Jerome Powell is expected today to share with the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs the same testimony shared yesterday with the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services.
Mr Powell, while acknowledging growth in the economy and the threat of increasing prices, did not indicate any changes in the Federal Reserve’s current asset purchase program. The Federal Reserve will maintain its purchase of Treasury securities and agency mortgage-backed securities totaling $120 billion a month.
