12.11.2015 16:07 International Monetary Fund: the Fed should not start raising its interest rates before inflation in the U.S. will not begin to pick up toward the Fed’s 2% target

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report on Thursday that the Fed should not start raising its interest rates before inflation in the U.S. will not begin to pick up toward the Fed's 2% target.

"The main near-term policy question is the appropriate timing and pace of monetary policy normalization. The Federal Open Market Committee's (FOMC) decision should remain data-dependent, with the first increase in the federal funds rate waiting until continued strength in the labour market is accompanied by firm signs of inflation rising steadily toward the Federal Reserve's 2 percent medium-term inflation objective," the IMF said.
