The Fed blackout period starts June 3
The FOMC decision is June 14 and the Fed is running out of time to offer hints about what's coming beforehand.
Here is the rundown:
- Brainard 2330 GMT
- FOMC Minutes
- Brainard on a panel
- Beige Book
Aside from Brainard's talk tonight, there isn't anything in the way of heavyweights or anyone we haven't heard from before.
That said, the last time the Fed hiked it was tipped by Dudley in a hastily-scheduled appearance on CNBC. It's very easy for officials to grab some headlines if they feel the need.
