But some Fed members warned that instability in emerging economies - many of which are heavily indebted and vulnerable when United States rates rise - could "spread more broadly through the global economy and financial markets".

Despite Trump's criticism, CNN reported that members at the most recent Federal Reserve meeting argued for continuing with the plan of raising the rate once more in December.

"The acceleration in market decline coincided with news that Treasury Secretary Mnuchin is the latest official to pull out of the upcoming Saudi Arabian investment conference", said Ryan Larson, head of US equity trading at RBC Global Asset Management in Chicago.

The discussion, revealed Wednesday in minutes of the Fed's September 25-26 policy meeting, showed that a few participants thought the Fed's key rate would need to "become modestly restrictive for a time" to prevent inflation from climbing too high.

Many on Wall Street and in government have decried the president's attacks on the Fed, pointing to the long-term danger of undermining the USA central bank.

Trump, who has openly criticized the Fed since July, doubled down on Tuesday, declaring the Fed his "biggest threat" in an interview on Fox Business. Along with low unemployment, inflation is roughly at the Fed's 2 percent target.

Former National Economic Council director Gary Cohn said on Thursday he doesn't think President Donald Trump should comment on independent agencies, after the President's repeated comments bashing the Federal Reserve. "It has rationalized the (Fed's) path", Bullard said.
