Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said the central bank is likely to taper mortgage and Treasury bonds at the same time rather than leading with MBS in order to tame a hot housing market.
"I think we will taper them at the same time, it seems likely, based on where people are now," Powell told reporters Wednesday.
"The idea of reducing MBS purchases at a somewhat faster pace than Treasuries does have some attraction for some people," he said. "It's something that we'll be continuing to discuss."
