Recent speeches by representatives of the Federal Reserve's management suggest that interest rates will continue to rise gradually, which will help curb inflation against the background of rapid economic growth. This scenario makes investors increasingly nervous, Reuters writes. Under the influence of data showing a steady growth in the labor market and the service sector, the yield on US government bonds rose on Wednesday. Investors have increased the bets that the Fed will raise rates in 2019 two or three times. The American regulator does not expect a sharp increase in inflation in the country and intends to continue a gradual increase in rates.
