Fed will be 'patiently accommodative,' Mester says on Bloomberg TV

·1 min read

Jan 7 (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve's current monetary policy stance is "well-calibrated" and does not need to react to short-term changes in markets or inflation, Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester told Bloomberg TV on Thursday.

Fed policy, because it works with a lag, "is going to be more patient than what a gyration in the bond yield would be or what a gyration in some of the economic data would be," Mester told Bloomberg TV. "We are going to be patiently accommodative and of course we will recalibrate as necessary."
