Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Richard Clarida said on Thursday that the current stance of monetary policy was appropriate but that looking ahead, the central bank's policy was not on a "preset course." Clarida was delivering a speech at the Council of Foreign Relations. Clarida also said the economy was in a good place. He added that the central bank would taper the amount of repo operations it has conducted as the Fed's $60 billion of monthly Treasury bill purchases helps to increase the level of reserves in the financial system. But Clarida said he could see the need for some repo operations to continue at least through April. As part of the Fed's repo injections, the central bank temporarily lends funds to broker-dealers in return for high-quality collateral like Treasurys.

Chicago Fed President Charles Evans told CNBC on Friday that he remained upbeat on the economy and expected U.S. gross domestic product to expand between 2% to 2.25% in 2020. He estimated trend growth was around 1.75%. Evans said strong growth and labor markets should push inflation to the central bank's target of 2%, but it isn't clear why the unemployment rate is continuing to grind lower without sparking price pressures. "We ought to be getting inflation to above 2% to show its a symmetric objective," he said. Evans also said he was comfortable with the current monetary policy setting. One of the lessons from last year was that the "economy can expand despite a modestly contracting manufacturing sector" thanks to the offsetting strength of consumers and households, he said. On Friday, the Institute for Supply Management reported the manufacturing gauge came in at 47.2% in December, its lowest reading since mid-2009 and stuck well in contraction territory.
