  1. They don’t know what is going to happen any more than we do but it appears they know which side their bread is buttered on and thus they become more predictable. Makes me laugh when I realize some Ranchers out here (Montana) use similar tactics when feeding their cattle.

  2. Hints in the minutes.

    “slowing or smoothing the pace of reserve decline through open market operations or through slowing portfolio redemptions” – potential to slow balance sheet runoff

    “portfolio of holdings weighted toward shorter maturities would provide greater flexibility” – push short/long rates down/up to fend off inversion

  3. Fed dovish…..Trump desperate to make deal with Xi.

    Risk on?
