Yellen disappointed not to get a second term as Fed chair

During his tenure and since being nominated by Trump in November to be lead the Fed, Powell has hewn close to former chief Janet Yellen's policies. However, the yields on government bonds are now at several-year highs, and the stock market ended Friday's extremely hard week in which Dow Jones lost 666 points on Friday.

Although expansion progressed progressively over past nine years, inflation remained mysteriously low, as Powell acknowledged.

Jerome Powell has taken office as the sixteenth president of the US Federal Reserve on Monday and takes over from Janet Yellen. His nomination was approved by the Senate earlier this month for a four-year term as chairman that will end in February 2022.

"I am humbled and honored by this opportunity to serve the American people", Powell said in a statement.

One of the worries from the market is that the Fed, under Powell, will accelerate its interest rate hikes, undermining the momentum of a bullish market.

Another challenge is from Yellen's final regulation act. The financial system, he says, is now "stronger and more resilient than before financial crisis that began a decade ago".

He studied politics at Princeton University, before earning a law degree from Georgetown University.

Yellen's final act at the Fed was to hit one of the largest USA banks, Wells Fargo & Co., with an unusual ban on growth that follows the San Francisco-based lender's pattern of consumer abuses and compliance lapses. "We know that our decisions matter to families and businesses", he said, "we adopt m objectively, based only on best available evidence".

Fed critics say the central bank purposely pushed up the stock market in an effort to create a wealth effect that officials hoped would spill over into the broader economy.
