US Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said that the US interest rate could be increased in the coming months.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States could see the next interest rate hike in upcoming months, US Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen stated on Friday.

"I think for the Fed to gradually and cautiously increase our overnight interest over time and probably in the coming months, such a move would be appropriate," Yellen said at Harvard University in Boston.
