"Once again, to refresh everyone on FedSpeak---FOMC voting members are Yellen, Dudley, Brainard, Bullard, Fischer, Esther George, Mester, Powell, Rosengren, Tarullo. Out of these 10, 7 (Dudley, Bullard, Fischer, Esther George, Mester, Rosengren, and Yellen) have indicated rate hike in recent months. Powell is the only one who has spoken against rate hike recently. Lockhart, Kashkari and Brainard speak today but Lockhart and Kashkari, however influential, are non voting members. That leaves Brainard. In her recent speech, she spoke of 'system reform' but did not talk about rate hike. Some are speculating she may be hawkish today; others are thinking dovish. Expect volatility before and during speech. But even if she speaks dovish, it matters only for a little while. 7/10 voting members including Yellen have already prepared market for a rate hike in recent months."
