Powell will be speaking at the Stanford Business, Government, and Society forum and will be delivering prepared remarks followed by a question-and-answer session with a moderator.

During the Fed’s meeting last month, Powell emphasized that more evidence was needed before considering cutting rates. He mentioned that interest rates were likely to be lowered later this year, but the timing was uncertain. Powell and other officials stated that they needed further data to confirm that inflation was moving towards the Fed’s 2% target.

Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic suggested that there could only be one rate cut this year, while other members of the Federal Open Market Committee have indicated three cuts. Markets are anticipating the Fed to begin easing either in June or July, with a total of three cuts expected by the end of 2024.
