FXStreet (Córdoba) - Fed Chair Janet Yellen said the US economy is performing well although she acknowledged some slowdown in employment. Regarding monetary policy, Yellen said FOMC thought it could be appropriate to move in December but that no decision was made. She reiterated that December would be live meeting as they continue to monitor data. Yellen said she sees a gradual upward path for interest rates which shouldn’t hurt the housing recovery. UPDATE Yellen said that she sees "pretty strong" domestic economy being offset by global weakness weighing on the US economy. She also commented she doesn't see need for negative rates now, but the Fed might consider them, and other tools, if the economy worsens. For more information, read our latest forex news.
