Economic news: The Fed is “well placed to begin the process of reducing the size of the balance sheet as early as after the conclusion of its upcoming meeting in May,” the Fed minutes showed on Wednesday.
Under the plan, the Fed would allow about $60 billion in Treasury securities and about $35 billion in agency MBS to roll off its balance sheet, which current stands at nearly $9 trillion.
Fed members also discussed the prospect of 50-basis-point rate hikes at one or more up coming meetings, but this was less hawkish than market expectations of 50 basis points at most meetings.
Focus is on RBI meeting, due on Friday.
