These speakers will all attract the attention of the market after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell testified Tuesday in front of U.S. lawmakers on Capitol Hill, playing down concerns about rising prices, maintaining his view that the country’s surging inflation would be transitory.
Additionally, New York Fed president John Williams, one of the more influential members of the Fed's rate-setting committee, stated that more progress is needed before the Fed begins to scale back its bond buying.
