10:55 EDTEuro$ interest rate options: mostly bullish positioning
Euro$ interest rate options: mostly bullish positioning has been spied ahead of the FOMC decision, implying that the statement could be pretty tame despite any expected changes from "considerable" to "patient". Among them were a 5k purchase of Short January 91/92 call spreads vs 85/86/87 put butterflies. Also, a 5k purchase of September 95 calls vs 91/93 put spreads, a purchase of 3k in Green January call 1x2s and sale of 15k in Green January 78 puts. The March 2015 contract is flat at 99.705, while the deferreds are up to 3.5-ticks lower out the curve.

09:30 EDTMinneapolis Fed's Kocherlakota will not seek another term
Minneapolis Fed's Kocherlakota will not seek another term, according to the Fed's website. His term expires on February 29, 2016. He took office in 2009 and initially followed the hawkish reputation of the regional bank. But he shifted his views toward a very dovish outlook in recent years and supported active central bank intervention which clashed with the traditional stance of the research staff. Indeed, the transformation has so great that he even dissented at the October FOMC meeting in favor of keeping rates lower for longer. It looks unlikely that he would have been supported for a second term. Hence, today will be his final voting opportunity.

09:15 EDTFOMC preview: the FOMC has resumed its meeting
FOMC preview: the FOMC has resumed its meeting and will announce its policy decision at 14:00 ET, with Yellen's press conference following at 14:30 ET. The strength in the economy and the labor market exhibited over the last couple of quarters should finally give policymakers enough confidence to continue its normalization process (after ending QE) by removing the "considerable time" language. But there won't be any definitive indication of the timing of rate lift-off. That will especially be the case given the failure of inflation to meet the 2% target (highlighted by the decline in November CPI), ongoing worries about a negative market reaction, not to mention the recent financial market turbulence. Indeed, analysts suspect the Committee will look beyond the recent volatility, as well as the signs of slower growth abroad as it crafts the policy statement. And this week's FOMC meeting offers the best opportunity for such changes since Yellen will be able to more fully explain the changes in the press conference. Nevertheless, assuming "considerable time" is removed, even if replaced by some indication of a "patient" approach, the markets will immediately jump to pricing in the first rate hike into the June 16, 17 meeting. That would be consistent with the 6-month time-frame suggested by Yellen's faux pas at her first presser back in March.
