Lower-than-expected inflation in the U.S. caused the dollar to sell off today. However, it appears that this may not change the stance from the Fed. Evans is known for his rather dovish stance, and in his statement he indicated that he sees a rate level of 3.25-3.5% this year, and 3.75-4.0% by the end of next year. This would mean that the Fed is still a long way from seeing signs of slowing inflation.
Evans also points out that labor market data can be misleading in terms of assessing inflation, while the stock market says nothing about when inflation might fall. Moreover, he believes that the market may be misjudging that the Fed may hover too far.
