Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen speaks during a press conference in Washington, DC on March 16, 2016Speaking at Harvard University, Yellen said she believed US economic growth and the labor market would continue to strengthen after the first-quarter slowdown, and that the Fed's early-2016 worries over the global economy and market volatility had diminished.

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen holds a press conference in WashingtonThe Federal Reserve should raise interest rates "in the coming months" if the economy picks up as expected and jobs continue to be generated, U.S. central bank chief Janet Yellen said on Friday, bolstering the case for a rate increase in June or July. "It's appropriate ... for the Fed to gradually and cautiously increase our overnight interest rate over time, and probably in the coming months such a move would be appropriate," Yellen said during an appearance at Harvard University. Although Yellen expressed caution about too steep a rise in U.S. interest rates, she sounded more confident than she has in the past about economic growth and the prospect of inflation edging higher toward the Fed's 2 percent target.
