Minutes Signal End to QE Tim Duy’s Fed Watch
The Fed seems content with the current pace of activity.  Content enough to believe they can pull the plug on quantitative easing this year.  I remain concerned that ending QE will slow forward momentum, thus the Fed is running the risk that they the economy will not achieve sufficient velocity to escape the zero bound. The actual timing is still data dependent, but I am wondering if we should change our framework from "how good does the data need to be end QE" to "how bad does the data need to be to continue QE?"
