Two Fed bank presidents backed rate hike ahead of last meeting
Yahoo News - 10 months
The heads of two regional Federal Reserve banks supported a rate hike ahead of the Fed's March meeting as an improving economy added to sentiment to tighten monetary policy. The heads of the Richmond and Kansas City Fed branches supported a quarter point hike in the main lending rates for banks "in light of continued improvements in labor market conditions and expectations that inflation would rise," according to minutes of the Fed's March discount rate meeting. The discussion over discount rates preceded the Fed's policy meeting held last month.

Fed signals caution on rate hikes, worried by global growth: minutes
Yahoo News - 11 months
The Federal Reserve appears unlikely to raise interest rates before June amid widespread concern at the U.S. central bank over its limited ability to counter the blow of a global economic slowdown, minutes from the Fed's March 15-16 policy meeting suggest. The minutes released on Wednesday showed policymakers debated whether they might hike rates in April but "a number" of them argued headwinds to growth would probably persist, with many arguing they should be cautious about raising rates. Policymakers had signaled at the close of the March meeting that they expected to raise rates twice in 2016 but the timing of the hikes still appears up in the air.

Four Fed banks call for discount rate hike: minutes
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Four regional Federal Reserve banks pushed to convince the central bank to raise the rate it charges commercial banks for emergency loans, meeting minutes released on Tuesday showed. Ahead of the Fed's March 17-18 policy-setting meeting, directors of the Cleveland, Philadelphia, Kansas City and Dallas Fed banks asked the Fed's board to bump up the discount rate to 1 percent from 0.75 percent, according to the minutes of Fed board meetings. The board, however, sided with the seven other regional Fed banks in opting to hold the rate steady. The four regional banks that requested a hike want to normalize the spread between the discount rate governing Fed lending to banks and the overnight federal funds rate, which is the central bank's primary economic lever.

Minutes show Fed supports stimulus through midyear
Fox News - almost 4 years
A majority of Federal Reserve policymakers want to continue extraordinary bond purchases to help boost the U.S. economy at least through the middle of the year, according to minutes from the Fed's last meeting released Wednesday. But many members indicated they want to slow and eventually end the program before the end of the year, as long as the job market and economy show sustained improvement. The Fed's purchases of about $85 billion a month in Treasury and mortgage bonds are intended to lower long-term interest rates and encourage more borrowing and spending. The minutes of the Fed's March 19-20 meeting were released at 9 a.m. EDT — five hours earlier than planned — after the Fed inadvertently sent them a day earlier to congressional staffers and lobbyists. "One gets the sense that many Fed policymakers are anxious to start paring back the size of the ... purchases as soon as the data allow," Dana Saporta, an economist at Credit Suiss ...

Fed tries to steer clear of controversial bond buys
Yahoo News - almost 5 years
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Reserve is independent but it does not exist in a vacuum, as waning appetite at the central bank for contentious bond purchases suggests. Minutes from the Fed's March meeting released this month showed support thinning for further bond purchases. Officials are unlikely to develop any more appetite for them by their meeting next week, despite disappointing March jobs figures. Policymakers have been heartened by patches of better economic data that raised hopes for solid growth this year, which helps explain their reticence toward further monetary ...

Market loses Fed crutch: James Saft
Reuters.com - almost 5 years
By James Saft (Reuters) – So now we will finally get to see if the stock market can stand on its own two feet. The Federal Reserve signaled this week that an additional round of extraordinary help such as quantitative easing is probably not in our immediate future, and so far risk assets like stocks are not liking it one little bit. Minutes from the Fed’s March meeting released on Tuesday showed a more constructive tone about the economy and, crucially, revealed that only two members of the policy-setting open market committee saw the case for more monetary stimulus. That’s a sharp change from the month before when ‘a number’ of members believed current conditions could justify additional easing. That slight chill breeze you felt was from the door slamming on any move in that direction at the Fed’s April meeting, implying that only a relapse in the economy will bring more help. Risk markets, such as equities, have duly sold off since the news, as investors made new calculations ...
