Yellen: volatile global outlook calls for gradual hikes

Janet Yellen

Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen offered a cautious outlook in emphasising volatile global conditions on March 29, in a speech pitched to soothe concerns over the pace of rate hikes.

"Given the risks to the outlook, I consider it appropriate for the committee to proceed cautiously in adjusting policy," she said.
