ABN AMRO sees no immediate implications for monetary policy post-Powell speech. But "some key unanswered questions for us are: 1) from when will this new framework apply? (i.e. will the Fed take into account the past few years of inflation undershoot?), and 2) what happens if inflation is persistently above 2% for a time – will the Fed then try to engineer below 2% inflation?"
