Commentaries

We communicate this to clients through regular 1 – 1 phone calls, email responses to clients’ questions, commentaries ahead of each FOMC meeting and after each meeting, upon the release of the minutes, FOMC participants’ macro and rate projections, and the Chairman’s press conference, as well as though commentaries on monetary policy strategy and key speeches by FOMC participants and testimonies by the chair.

Here is a list of the commentaries we regularly write.

FOMC Briefing

In the lead-up to each FOMC meeting, eight times per year, we provide a comprehensive written report on the monetary policy outlook and what to expect from the FOMC. We review the incoming data and key themes for the economic outlook and monetary policy. We set out what specific policy decisions, if any, we expect, as well as our guess about the post-meeting statement.

FOMC Cycle Commentary

We comment both in anticipation of and in reaction to all FOMC communications, which include:

FOMC Statement

FOMC Press Conferences

FOMC Macro and Rate Projections

Fed Balance Sheet Decisions

Commentary on Key Speeches and Testimony

Twice a year the Chair testifies on monetary policy before the respective oversight committees of the Senate and the House. The Q&A probes the rationale for decisions taken.

FOMC participants frequently give public remarks, whether in speeches, interviews, press conferences, or other platforms. These remarks are critical in revealing each participant’s views about the outlook and thinking about upcoming policy decisions. There is an abundance of communications, and we monitor all of it, “counting heads” to get an idea about where the consensus on policy is headed. We extract and highlight what is truly vital, as well as provide context, in written commentaries. Just as important, we identify which comments have been misinterpreted or have had too much importance attached to them.

Weekly Updates

We provide a concise overview of developments relevant to monetary policy over the last week, with an emphasis on reviewing and interpreting recent communications from FOMC participants. We look for and track the developing themes that will drive upcoming policy decisions by the Committee.

Commentary on Employment Report

The monthly jobs report is the single most important economic data release for the monetary policy outlook. When it’s released near the beginning of each month, we review it and provide our take on the implications for the labor market outlook, which weighs heavily on FOMC policy decisions.
