  • Minutes from the October FOMC meeting indicated the Fed is content to remain on the sidelines for the rest of this year as the looser financial conditions resulting from rate cuts at three consecutive meetings feed through to the economy.

  • As the data continue to come out, it appears increasingly likely the fourth quarter will be yet another quarter of weak-but positive economic growth in the U.K. and the Eurozone.
