Bostic further noted that he is optimistic that the faster job growth of last May and June can return with vaccinations.
"A lot of the strength households currently feel in their finances depends on the outcome of fiscal discussions."
"Hope there is a consistent approach that is approved by both banks and communities in the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) reform."
The greenback remains under strong bearish pressure following these remarks. As of writing, the US Dollar Index, which tracks the USD's performance against a basket of six major currencies, was losing 0.48% on a daily basis at 89.75.
