RBA Minutes In Focus

FED: MNI has just published an interview with former Atlanta Fed President
Dennis Lockhart which adds a bit of colour on what Powell and co. may discuss at
this week's FOMC meeting, with emphasis on the neutral policy rate.
* FOMC could send new signals about the policy path ahead, including moving
towards better defining the neutral rate of interest and how to proceed once
this level is reached. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell will likely direct the
committee to hammer out a framework and working assumptions on which they'll
premise policy after arrival at neutral, Lockhart told MNI.
* Picking an internal working estimate may be necessary because "they will have
to decide -- not at this meeting but in future meetings -- whether they're going
to pause or go forward once they reach neutral with further rate increases."
