Keep an eye on the FOMC minutes this Wednesday

18 Feb

Fed minutes from the meeting of January 29-30 are released this Wednesday.

Markets will be focusing on whether there will be any mention of future plans for ending purchases.

This seems unlikley, however, given the persistently elevated level of unemployment and subdued inflation numbers. CPI is also out on Thursday with consensus estimates for inflation to remain at 1.7% in the US.

Let us know what you think.
