Ben Bernanke called for greater transparency when he took the reins of the Federal Reserve. But as Wall Street awaits the Fed's Wednesday statement, two analysts still seeks clues to second-guess the chairman.
Art Hogan, managing director at Jefferies, reminded CNBC's Liz Claman that jobs growth has been "tremendous." He predicts that if the labor market remains tight, the Fed will "stay on the sidelines" for the "balance of this year."
Joining Hogan on "Morning Call" was David Chalupnik, head of equities at First American Funds. The latter declared that Wednesday will see "no change" in interest rates -- and he went one step further than Hogan, predicting that the U.S. economy will "moderate as the year goes on." Chalupnik believes that inflationary forces will "remain contained," and any rate cut will be pushed out to the second half.
