It also ended with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell remarking in a speech that “it seems to me likely that the ultimate level of [US interest] rates will need to be somewhat higher than thought at the time of the September meeting” but going on to say the pace of hikes to get there could slow as soon as December.
