Financial markets have priced in a 77.9 per cent chance of a rise in US interest rates in December following a speech by Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, compared with 72.8 per cent previously. The central bank has flagged one more rate rise in 2017 and further tightening of monetary policy over the next several years. However, Yellen has told a conference that the outlook for inflation will influence how rapidly interest rates are increased. Inflation has remained below the Federal Reserve’s target of two per cent for some time.
