FOMC Minutes: How Fast? How Much? – Credit Agricole

Credit Agricole CIB Research comments on today’s FOMC minutes from the May-3rd meeting.

1- As the economic expansion continues, the FOMC believes that the policy accommodation arising from its large balance sheet should be gradually removed.

2- We look for the Fed to shrink its balance sheet, possibly beginning in December with the aim of reducing it over time by about USD2.5trn.

3– We look for a modest, controlled pace of reducing reinvestment amounts in order to avoid disrupting markets and to smooth out the reinvestment process. That could be consistent with a reduction of USD200-250bn in 2018, say, USD20bn a month split equally between MBS and Treasuries.
