USD: What To Expect From FOMC Minutes? – Barclays

Barclays Capital Research expect the FOMC minutes from the September meeting (Wed) to show that  most participants see recent disinflation as largely driven by transitory factors.

“We expect the discussion to remain focused on inflation and its shortfall relative to what the Fed’s Phillips curve framework would suggest, but we believe most participants will view the unexplained weakness as dissipating over time, thereby permitting a return of inflation to the target.

The minutes may indicate that members preferred to reduce their estimate of the longrun neutral rate of interest as opposed to halting the normalization process.

Elsewhere, we expect the minutes to include discussion as to why it was time to begin balance sheet runoff and how members see the balance of risks to the outlook for the US economy,” Barclays adds.
