Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic recently spoke with NPR about the Fed's recent decision to raise the policy rate. Bostic noted that it was not an easy decision to make, but it was necessary to address the high level of inflation. He also stated that the banking system is safe and resilient, and the Fed is comfortable navigating any potential troubles in the banking sector.

Bostic emphasized the need for the Fed to get inflation under control, noting that it is still too high. He added that he does not expect the economy to fall into a recession, but the Fed needs to remain focused on inflation to ensure that the economy remains on a stable footing. Despite Bostic's comments, the market reaction has been muted, with the US Dollar Index up 0.55% on the day at 103.15.

Investors will be closely watching future Fed decisions to see if they continue to focus on controlling inflation and maintaining a stable economy. As inflation remains a concern, it will likely impact consumer spending and business investment, which could have broader economic implications.
