On the radar: Atlanta Fed Business Inflation Expectations remain low in May

The Atlanta Fed Business Inflation Expectations measure for May was “essentially unchanged” at 1.5% after 1.4% in April.

Inflation expectations have moderated — both for businesses and consumers — in part on the steep drop in energy prices but also due to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic which has impaired normal underlying movements that affect prices.

Addendum: Powell later said that negative rates were off the table as a tool of monetary policy.
