Federal Reserve Governor Christopher Waller is scheduled to speak before the Council on Foreign Relations in New York at 1 p.m. Friday. Afterwards, CNBC’s Steve Laisman will moderate the question-and-answer session.
Waller’s remarks are the last from Fed officials before they enter the Jan. 31-Feb. 1 policy meeting. Markets widely expect the rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee to raise its benchmark interest rate one and a quarter percentage pointsTaking it to the target range of 4.5%-4.75%.
