The Ibex 35 loses 1.5% in the middle of the session and trades at 7,800 points after the Fed


The Ibex 35 traded with a fall of 1.56% in the middle of the session, which led it to trade at 7,844.5 integers, losing the level of 7,900 points, after the president of the United States Federal Reserve (Fed), Jerome Powell, has considered that it is "very premature" to think about a possible pause in interest rate increases in the country, while pointing out that the price of money still has to go further into restrictive territory .

Powell conveyed this message yesterday afternoon, when he also announced that the Fed had unanimously approved a fourth consecutive rise in the country's interest rates of 75 basis points, to place them in a target range of between 3.75% and the 4%.
