Monetary Policy Statement, “What to Watch” – Oct 30

October 30, 2013

Ahead of FOMC decision on interest rate or prior to the release of statement by FED, market may prefer to stay quiet. After a torrid 1st two-weeks of this month, caused by US government shutdown, FED may not afford risk of tapering and would like to buy some more time due to distortion in economic activity, which will be known after the release of October economic data next month.
FED statement could be of key relevance if it gives time table or hint of its scaling down plan. FED is faced with a difficult task, as tapering soon or delay in tapering, both will impact the market one way or the other. Since market priced in delay, due to recent debt problems, any hint of cut in asset purchase plan this year by the US Central Bank will have bigger impact, as we do not know that Bernanke may would like to start tapering before he says good bye, unlike his predecessor Allan Greenspan who left all the dirt for his successor.

“Monetary Policy Statement”,  What to watch…………
-How much is FED concerned about Most Recent Economic Activity
-About recent release of poor Economic Data
-Language about Labour Market
-FED Language not too Dovish or Dovish
-Any Change in overall FED Language
-And more importantly, any hint of timing to begin Tapering
