14:02 EDTFederal Reserve expects gradual increases in federal funds rate
The Federal Reserve said in today's statement, "In determining the timing and size of future adjustments to the target range for the federal funds rate, the Committee will assess realized and expected economic conditions relative to its objectives of maximum employment and 2 percent inflation. This assessment will take into account a wide range of information, including measures of labor market conditions, indicators of inflation pressures and inflation expectations, and readings on financial and international developments. In light of the current shortfall of inflation from 2 percent, the Committee will carefully monitor actual and expected progress toward its inflation goal. The Committee expects that economic conditions will evolve in a manner that will warrant only gradual increases in the federal funds rate; the federal funds rate is likely to remain, for some time, below levels that are expected to prevail in the longer run. However, the actual path of the federal funds rate will depend on the economic outlook as informed by incoming data."

13:15 EDTTreasury Action: yields probed to highs
Treasury Action: yields probed to highs following the stumble on the 5-year note auction, which tailed out and never really was going to go that well given the proximity with the Fed decision. The current 5-year yield had already sprinted up from 1.417% lows in Asia to clear 1.48%, compared to the 1.496% award rate on the new notes. Yet that concession apparently wasn't enough to shelter investors from risk of post-FOMC volatility in the secondary market.

12:30 EDTFX Action: USD-JPY is up flirting with the 119.00 level
FX Action: USD-JPY is up flirting with the 119.00 level, topping at 118.97, as a rebound in oil prices lifts Wall Street, with the better risk backdrop in turn, boosting USD-JPY. This is the highest since January 6, when the pairing peaked at 119.17. The yen has been under some pressure all week, as the market has reassessed the probability of further BoJ stimulus, as early as this Friday's meeting.
12:20 EDTPossible Russian coordination with OPEC
Possible Russian coordination with OPEC was discussed at a meeting with Russian oil companies, according to a Reuters report citing the Russian Energy Ministry, which was related to unfavorable oil prices. There were similar noises yesterday about Iraq and Russia, but this seems to be adding amplitude to the oil rebound now and helping putting a bid in equities and dollar-yen.
