U.S. Fed’s Daly says patient on rates, eyeing trade talks

June 3, 2019

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank President Mary Daly said on Monday she was taking a patient approach on interest rates until economic data and trade talks provided more clarity on the U.S. growth outlook.

“Right now what we have are trade discussions and those trade discussions are creating more uncertainty in the economy,” Daly said at a symposium on Asian banking and finance in Singapore.

“But my stance is to be patient and wait to see what the details on the trade discussions are.”
