In Wednesday’s interview, Charles Evans, Chicago Fed President, agreed that low inflation may force the Fed to delay the next interest rate hike, but he argued that it would not stop the U.S. central bank from beginning to reduce its balance sheet in September: “I personally think that it would be quite reasonable to (begin trimming the Fed’s balance sheet) in September on the basis of the data that I’ve seen so far, even with the potentially temporary lower inflation data.” Importantly, in line with our May edition of the Market Overview, Evans pointed out that the unwinding of the Fed’s balance sheet would have limited impact on financial markets because it had been so well telegraphed.
