Powell Ready to Cut Rates to "Effective Lower Bound" via "Conventional" Policy

•, by Mish

Let's tune into to statements Powell made today at a "Conference on Monetary Policy Strategy, Tools, and Communications Practices". Emphasis is mine.

I'd like first to say a word about recent developments involving trade negotiations and other matters. We do not know how or when these issues will be resolved. We are closely monitoring the implications of these developments for the U.S. economic outlook and, as always, we will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion, with a strong labor market and inflation near our symmetric 2 percent objective. My comments today, like this conference, will focus on longer-run issues that will remain even as the issues of the moment evolve.
