Federal Open Market Committee January meeting minutes are due for release on Wednesday 2018 February 2019 at 1900GMT

Macquarie on what they are watching (in summary):

  • January meeting codified flexibility, "wait and see" approach
  • Minutes to be read for additional insight on what conditions FOMC would like to see before making the next policy change
  • Particular attention may be focused on balance sheet normalization - Powell's presser indicated the normalization path is flexible, & suggested there was a willingness to use the balance sheet as a tool if economic conditions warranted


FWIW my tip is to watch CPI developments and for a bounce back in economic indicators (not they need to bounce too much to confirm underlying US economic strength).
