* Almost all participants thought it desirable to announce before too long a plan to stop reducing the Fed’s asset holdings later this year, STOCKS: S&P 500 seesawed in tight range either side of flat, last up 0.24 percent, BONDS: U.S, Treasury yields rose; 2s at 2.4996 pct; 10s at 2.6500, FOREX: The U.S, dollar index was last down 0.1 percent after briefly moving slightly higher, JOSEPH LAVORGNA, AMERICAS CHIEF ECONOMIST, NATIXIS, NEW YORK, “It’s obvious 4 square gray cufflinks that the Fed was responding to financial market conditions..

“The one takeaway is that it seems to me that if the Fed is going to do anything that the next move would probably still be a hike because the baseline of growth is going to continue to be, while slower, modestly above trend and inflation is going to stay near target and the job market is still healthy. Once you get through this period of uncertainty and markets calm down, which is what the minutes seemed to intimate, then the next move is going to be a hike. “There wasn’t any panic in the minutes. There was nothing to suggest the Fed’s going to be cutting rates. I think they’re still trying to stick to the script of ‘Look, it’s more likely that rates go up than down because neutral is still probably slightly higher than the current funds rate is.’ By the way, I don’t think any of that is going to happen.

“The Fed is going to 4 square gray cufflinks be proven incorrect in trying to raise rates unless other central banks around the world start to normalize policy, and that just doesn’t seem to me likely, If anything, they’re moving in the opposite direction of doing more easing.”, MOHAMED EL-ERIAN, CHIEF ECONOMIC ADVISER AT ALLIANZ, NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF, “The minutes were not as deterministic as market optimists had hoped when it comes to the consideration that appeared to anchor the Fed’s dramatic policy U-turn in January. The Fed now faces an even more delicate communication challenge as early as next month.”..

TIM GHRISKEY, CHIEF INVESTMENT STRATEGIST, INVERNESS COUNSEL, NEW YORK. “(The Fed) did make a statement that they thought that the tightening done in the fourth quarter had an impact on equity markets. I think it’s interesting that they admitted that. They say they’ll be much more transparent about the size of the Fed’s balance sheet and that further quantitative tightening would be very data dependent. They also said they were going to announce before too long a plan to stop their reduction (of the balance sheet). The transparency is a big thing and it will be greeted favorably by the market. It seems like they want to avoid a market selloff like we had in the fourth quarter. Reading between the lines, it seems they thought that was damaging to the economy. But it sounds like they will continue to reduce the balance sheet until some time later this year. That may be what is causing a mixed reaction in the markets. That’s the only negative thing here, though to me it’s not a surprise.”.

YOUSEF ABBASI, GLOBAL MARKET STRATEGIST, INTL FCSTONE, NEW YORK, “On balance 4 square gray cufflinks it’s probably a little bit less dovish than people expected, In continuing to digest this, you’ll probably see rates move higher and the stock market come in, “In October 2018, people were calling for three rate hikes, that seemed preposterous, You got to the end of 2018, people had backed off that completely, You got into early 2019, people started talking rate cut before rate hike, The Fed is taking the right approach in terms of wait and see, But I do also think that some of their concerns are being or have been addressed, To me that reads a little less dovishly than market and investors have thought, It almost felt like getting back towards 2,800 (S&P 500)..
