It's a jam packed week for Fed speakers
We will be hearing from at least five speakers today, and here is the list:

Williams will be speaking on economic outlook at an event hosted by the Bank of Spain. The title of his speech will be "Global recovery: The good, the bad, the ugly". There will be a Q&A session with the audience and the media thereafter.
1400 GMT - Fed vice chair Quarles testifies before House Financial Services panel
Quarles will be providing the semi-annual testimony on the conduct of supervision and regulation of depository institution holding companies and other financial firms supervised by the Fed. Not likely to contain anything significant in terms of monetary policy.
1500 GMT - Philly Fed head Patrick Harker speaks in Philadelphia
Harker will be speaking on "The economics of equitable education: How today's loans, access, and training affect tomorrow's economy". There will also be a Q&A session with the audience thereafter.

Bostic will be providing his outlook on the current state of the economy in a keynote interview.
Among those speaking, only Williams, Quarles, and Bostic are voters in the FOMC this year. Although Williams will be taking over the NY Fed soon enough, he'll still be on the voting board as the NY Fed is guaranteed a voting seat in the FOMC.
