“Powell also said that the Fed will be patient as it observes how the economy evolves and referred to 2016 as an example where the FOMC indicated four hikes but only raised the target range once in December.”

“Powell’s comments came after FOMC members Kaplan (on Thursday) and Mester (earlier on Friday) said something similar and overall, the Fed is clearly indicating flexibility in its policy both in terms of the interest rate and quantitative tightening.
