14:45 EDTFed Chair Yellen said she did't want to "overstate the importance"
Fed Chair Yellen said she did't want to "overstate the importance" of the first rate hike as she paraphrased the statement, trying to stem market volatility. She noted the economy hit a soft patch in Q1, with activity little changed. Some cyclical weakness in the labor market remains and wage growth is still subdued. Her tone is again tilted to the dovish side..

14:00 EDTFOMC T-minus 10 and counting:
FOMC T-minus 10 and counting: the Fed is set to announce its decision shortly, with Yellen to follow with her press conference at the bottom of the hour. The statement isn't likely to be too telling. The economic outlook should be upgraded a bit versus the somewhat downtrodden view from April after the dismal Q1 weakness. Also, the inflation outlook might pick up a bit as energy prices have rebounded. But, of most importance will be the Fed's new forecasts (SEP), including the dot-plot, and then Yellen's comments.
13:55 EDTFed's Yellen is getting some heat for "willful obstruction"
Fed's Yellen is getting some heat for "willful obstruction" of the subpoena to get her to reveal the protagonist in the the leak probe, according to the House Financial Services Committee, which rejected her reason for non-compliance. Fed reporter Pedro da Costa of the WSJ has allegedly been banned from today's presser after the statement for pestering Yellen on the leak, and he's asked others to press her in his stead. Could get interesting.
12:10 EDTTreasury Option Action: the low-volume sell-off
Treasury Option Action: the low-volume sell-off in underlying Treasury futures into the Fed decision has been accompanied by mixed option activity, say sources. They note that it's been fairly orderly and directionally mixed. Among the standouts on the 10-year were bullish buyers of 12k in July 126 calls, 3.5k in July 127 calls, along with bullish sales of 7.5k in July 125/124 put 1x2s, 5k in August 124 puts and 1k in August 125/123.5 put spreads. On the bearish side were purchases of 5k in August 122/123.5/125 put butterflies, 5k in July 123.5 puts and 7.5k in week 3 124 puts. Also bearish were sales of some 15k total in various call structures. September 10s reversed opening gains and have since slumped 14.5-ticks to the 125-145 area, compared with the 126-02 to 125-135 range. The cash T-note has since backed up from 2.30% in Asia to session highs of 2.377%.

11:35 EDTFOMC forecast revisions will be a key outcome from today' meeting
FOMC forecast revisions will be a key outcome from today' meeting and will be used to assess tightening probabilities for later in the year, as well as the likely rate trajectory. Despite the bounce in growth optimism in recent weeks, the FOMC will likely trim the official GDP estimates for 2015. But, it is also expected to increase the 2015-16 PCE chain price projections as energy prices have partly recovered from early-2015 lows. Analysts expect a 0.1%-0.2% downward shift in the 2015 GDP central tendency of 2.3%-2.7%, and 0.4% boosts in the 2015 PCE chain price central tendency of 0.6%-0.8%, with likely additional upward nudge of 0.1% in the low-end inflation estimates for 2016. The core price central tendencies should remain roughly unchanged. The Fed may sidestep the usual downward bumps in the jobless rate estimates, given the flat jobless rate trend since February. The aggressive high-end near-term Fed funds rate estimates should be lowered as views converge toward the market expectation of a September or October start for Fed tightening. page for a table of our assumptions for the Fed's revised forecasts.
