Watch Fed Chairman Jerome Powell speak live to a group of bankers in Amsterdam

(The stream is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. ET. Please refresh the page if you do not see a player above at that time.)

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell speaks at the Foreign Bankers Association’s annual general meeting in Amsterdam on Tuesday.

This is the central bank leader’s first public speech since the Federal Open Market Committee voted again in favor of maintaining its benchmark interest rate, which it has done since July 2023.

Policymakers remain concerned that inflation is not showing enough evidence that it is approaching the Fed’s 2% annual target. Recent data showed prices at the consumer and wholesale level were higher than expected, while consumer confidence also showed elevated expectations in the near term.

Markets still expect the Fed to cut rates later this year, and Powell said after the FOMC meeting that he thought rates were unlikely to rise from here on out.
