  • Anticipates further rate hikes, but data dependent. Him him him him him him

The USD has moved a little lower after the FOMC meeting minutes. The Fed anticipates further rate hikes, but is more data dependent and comments that it would likely to be appropriate to slow tightening pace at some point. The last comment did not have to be made, but was indicative of getting closer to a stall point.
