Fixed-income drivers Yellen told Bloomberg News on Saturday that the Biden administration’s spending plan would be good for the U.S., even if it contributes to rising inflation and results in higher interest rates.That said, the Treasury secretary said she expects pricing pressures, the market’s most significant fear in the economic rebound from COVID, to be temporary and due to factors including supply-chain bottlenecks rather than representing a sustained price rise.

Yellen estimated that inflation will remain elevated at 3% year over year until about the year.Biden is championing a roughly $4 trillion budget plan that is widely viewed by strategists as holding the potential to contribute to further pushing inflation up.

April payrolls were raised to show a rise of 278,000, versus an initial estimate of 266,000. Analysts last month had looked for a payrolls rise of around 1 million.Looking ahead, this week is light on major data, in the lead up to the Fed’s two-day policy meeting which kicks off June 15.
