The latest Fed meeting minutes revealed that the members had mixed opinions about the timing of the tapering of bond purchases. Andrew Wilkinson, the Miller Tabak chief economist said that the FOMC minutes suggest very clearly that the Federal department wants to keep everyone guessing about the exact timing of the tapering of its bond-buying spree. He added that to that extent, any divisions are an indication of the data-dependency of the Fed’s decisions to slowdown its purchase-pace.
