Key Quotes



“USD risk is a rally - All in all we expect the minutes to highlight a more hawkish Fed than recent comments by Chair Yellen, this is in part because the minutes will include the views of the non‐voting hawkish members (Bullard, Lacker and George)”



“However any USD strength is likely to be fairly muted with the minutes lacking any significant shift”.
