FORT WORTH, Texas Jan 31 Dallas Federal Reserve
Bank President Richard Fisher, a constant critic of the Fed's
massive bond-buying program, said on Friday he is satisfied with
the pace at which the U.S. central bank is reducing bond-buying
and expects it to end before the year is out.
"From my perspective, I was pleased that all members of the
committee saw things closer to how I have been seeing them,"
Fisher, who votes this year on the Fed's policy-setting panel,
told reporters after a talk.
Turmoil in emerging markets that has accompanied the start
of the Fed's wind-down of its economic stimulus should not keep
the Fed from acting in the best interest of the U.S. economy,
which is to end the bond-buying as soon as possible, he said.
