The FOMC minutes for the Fed’s meeting on June 17–18
The Fed usually releases the minutes of its Federal Open Market Committee, or FOMC, meetings about three weeks after each meeting. While a press conference and statement usually follow each FOMC meeting, a more detailed account of the FOMC comes from the meeting’s minutes. Both stock (OEF) and bond (BND) investors keenly watch for these minutes. The minutes give you clues to the Fed’s future monetary policy and the path of the Fed funds rate.
