    [综合报道]正如预期的那样,美联储在第十九日宣布,它将提高联邦基金利率25个基点至2.25%到2.5%,第四次加息美联储今年以来,美国股市大幅下跌之后。

    台湾中央社报道,第二十,Jerome Powell,美联储主席是美国总统特朗普的批评无动于衷,强调加息决定没有政治考量。

    美国股市大幅下跌后,美联储提高利率:琼斯工业平均指数下跌351.98点,或1.49%,在最后23323.66。纳斯达克指数下跌147.08点,或2.17%,收于6636.83点;标准普尔500指数下跌39.20或1.54%至2506.96。

    This is the fourth time the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates this year. 鲍威尔大胆地批评了特朗普的名字,很多次,他和所有成员的联邦公开市场委员会(FOMC)通过加息决定无异议。

    在声明中,美联储表示,事实上,无论是劳动力市场和通胀在美国遇到的预期来看,经济数据显示,美国的劳动力市场和经济活动将继续增长,而整体通胀率不包括食品和能源价格接近2%。通过大量的数据支持,美联储决定提高利率。

    At the press conference, facing the reporters question "How to view the pressure caused by Trumps many public expressions of opposition to interest rate hikes", Powell said in a very calm tone, without mentioning Trumps name, that the Fed does not consider political factors for interest rate hikes or not. "I am the same as all members, according to a lot of data and information, we should do our duty. Make the best decision.

    He also said on many occasions that the current economic data show that the United States is in the healthiest year of economic development since the financial crisis, so the decision to raise interest rates is "appropriate".
