Ben Bernanke, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve, said Wednesday he saw no evidence of extreme movements in U.S. markets, including real estate, according to a Reuters report citing his comments at a conference in the South Korean capital Seoul. Bernanke also reportedly said an expected U.S. interest-rate hike would be a positive sign, as it would represent a vote of confidence in the economy from the Fed. "As long as the financial system is healthy, even if there's movement in prices that's OK. I don't see anything that's extreme," Reuters quoted him as saying.
