Therefore, the Fed has almost no room to raise interest rates at a faster rate.
At the same time, it is worth noting that the Fed policy has become sensitive to stock market volatility. In short, the dollar is no longer a safe currency, and the increase in risk aversion will increase the possibility of suspending interest rate hikes (or interest rate cuts).
