Publish date:

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank will hold press conferences at each of its meetings beginning in 2019, vs. the traditional schedule of one per quarter.

Danielle DiMartino Booth, a former Fed advisor and author of Fed Up, supports the move and thinks it will add more transparency for Fed watchers. 

Plus, the Fed telegraphed four total rate hikes in 2018, according to a fresh forecast on Wednesday, up from the original forecast of three.

As expected, the Fed hikes interest rates on Wednesday - it's second increase of 2018.
