(Reuters) - St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard said on Monday that a single U.S. interest rate rise would be all that was necessary for the time being, repeating comments he had made recently.

Bullard was speaking on the U.S. economy and monetary policy before a conference co-sponsored by the Association for University Business and Economic Research (AUBER), in Fayetteville, Ark.
