Bullard sees first rate hike in March


"The end of 2015 Q1 is still my preferred liftoff date," St. Louis Fed chief Jim Bullard tells the WSJ. A March rate hike is well ahead of the H2 timetable being signaled by Janet Yellen and the broader FOMC, but Bullard says the Fed is now closer to its twin goals of 2% inflation and low unemployment than had been previously expected.

Investors should fear the Fed falling behind the curve on inflation, he says, as "that's certainly been the history of the institution."

Fearing no such falling behind the curve at the moment, the 10-year Treasury yield continues at a 15-month low of 2.40%.
