Investing.com – Federal Reserve policymakers were split on the outlook for future rate hikes, as fed members struggled to balance concerns about the slowdown in inflation with the growth in the labor market, according to the minutes of the Fed’s last policy meeting released on Wednesday.
The details of the meeting, at which the U.S. central bank voted to keep rates unchanged, also showed that “some participants” expressed concerns about the slowdown in inflation, and said the Fed could afford to stand pat on interest rates until the decline in inflation subsided.
On the Fed’s plan to reduce its $4.5tn balance sheet, members agreed that the process of reducing the Fed’s large portfolio of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities should begin “relative soon” while others wanted to wait until the upcoming policy meeting.
“Participants generally agreed that, in light of their current assessment of economic conditions and the outlook, it was appropriate to signal that implementation of the program likely would begin relatively soon,” the minutes said
The dollar fell 0.29% to trade at 93.47 while the U.S. 10-Year traded lower at 2.236.
