Puede ser aconsejable esperar para realizar la segunda subida de tipos, según Patrick T. Harker, presidente de la Fed de Philadelphia

It might be wise for America's central bank to wait for signs of higher inflation before raising interest rates again, one of the Fed's newly-appointed rate-setters said on Tuesday.

Speaking at the University of Delaware, the president of the Federal Reserve bank of Philadelphia, Patrick Harker, said "it might prove prudent to wait until the inflation data are stronger before we undertake a second rate hike. I am approaching near-term policy a bit more cautiously than I did a few months ago."

Nonetheless, he expected the central bank to be able to raise rates more "meaningfully" in the backhalf of 2016, once financial and energy markets had stabilised.

Harker said he expected the Federal Reserve to be able to "truly normalise" in the second half of 2016 as inflation edged higher to 1.5%, unemployment declined to 4.7% and the rate of growth in gross domestic product reached 2.7% by the end of he year.

The Philly Fed president was appointed to his post in mid-2015 and would not have a vote on policy until 2017.

"I mean this in the sense that we can move away meaningfully from the zero lower bound."
