FOMC of a mind to raise rates in March - Powell

United States Federal Reserve's Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is "of a mind to raise rates at the March meeting," Fed Chair Jerome Powell revealed on Wednesday.

The potential decision will depend on the conditions for doing so being met or not, he clarified at a press conference.
