Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic, said he expects high inflation to persist into 2022 and the U.S. central bank should raise interest rates by the end of 2022.
Additionally, the number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits dropped to a 19-month low last week, pointing to a tightening labor market, though a shortage of workers could keep the pace of hiring moderate in October.
