Fed balance sheet should end up higher than $2.9 trillion, Dudley says
The Federal Reserve should stop shrinking its balance sheet when it gets down to a level somewhere higher than $2.9 trillion, said New York Fed President William Dudley on Friday. During comments at a Chicago Booth monetary policy forum, Dudley said he thought the Fed needed a large balance sheet to set a floor for short-term interest rates. The Fed has started to slowly shrink its balance sheet from $4.5 trillion but has not yet specified at what level it would stop. Dudley may not have a say in the final decision as he is set to retire later this year. But the New York Fed's views carry a lot of weight at the central bank as they are in charge of the market implementation of central bank policy.

Fed says it is still planning to raise interest rates gradually
The Federal Reserve is planning further gradual interest-rate increases but still plans to keep the federal funds rates on the low side, the central bank said Friday in its monetary policy report to Congress. The report, which Chairman Jerome Powell will testify about next week, couched monetary policy in very similar terms to the statement the Fed gave at its last policy meeting in January. The Fed didn't seem alarmed about recent pay developments, saying the "growth of labor compensation has been moderate." On the stock market, the Fed said valuation pressures remain elevated and that there are signs nonbank financial leverage has been building, including to hedge funds that invest in stocks.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Fed's Quarles says low U.S. inflation readings are not a 'great concern'
Recent low inflation readings are not a "great concern," and the U.S. central bank should continue to raise interest rates gradually, said Randall Quarles, the new Federal Reserve vice chairman for supervision, on Thursday. In a speech in Tokyo, Quarles said the economy "is performing very well" with a strong labor market and "likely only temporary softness in inflation." Quarles noted that headline personal consumption expenditure index rose at a 1.7% annual rate in December, just below the Fed's 2% target. "Suffice to say, a deviation from our target by a few tenths of 1 percentage point, especially one I expect to fade, does not cause me great concern," Quarles said. A Trump appointee, Quarles was optimistic about the impact of the Republican tax cuts. He said the investment drought that has afflicted the U.S. economy over the past five years "may finally be breaking."

Regional bank ETF on track for record close in wake of Fed minutes
Exchange-traded funds that track the banking sector surged on Wednesday, after minutes from the Federal Reserve's most recent meeting pointed to higher odds for more rate hikes going forward. The SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF added 1.8% and was on track for a record close. Separately, the SPDR S&P Bank ETF jumped 1.8% and was on track for its highest close since late January, which itself represented its best close since 2007, before the worst of the financial crisis. The fund is up 7.9% thus far this year, easily outperforming the 2.7% rise of the S&P 500, while the regional bank fund has gained 8.3% in 2018. The Fed's minutes showed that officials saw a stronger economy than at the end of last year, and that strength "increased the likelihood that a gradual upward trajectory of the federal funds rate would be appropriate." Bank stocks tend to do well in rising-rate environments, given the impact it has on their net interest margins, or the difference between the interest they earn on the loans they make and the interest they pay out. Low margins can lead to lower earnings. Among specific stocks, Bank of America rose 1.2% while Citigroup Inc. added 2.4%. On the regional side, Zions Bancorp was up 2.7% and Regions Financial Corp. was up 2.3%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Dow jumps 240 points after Fed minutes, with stocks drifting near session highs
The Dow Jones Industrial Average Wednesday afternoon was trading near its highs of the session after the market digested minutes from the Federal Reserve's most recent policy gathering. The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 261 points, or 1.1%, to 25,242, the S&P 500 index climbed 1.1% at 2,746, while the technology-laden Nasdaq Composite Index , a proxy for risk appetite on Wall Street, climbed 1.4%. The minutes from the Fed's January convention appeared to suggest that the central bank would be likely to move gradually to normalize interest-rate policy from ultralow levels in order to avoid upending the broader market. Minutes from the Jan. 30-31 Federal Open Market Committee meeting showed that officials saw a stronger economy than at the end of 2017 and that more rate hikes were in the offing. The strengthening "increased the likelihood that a gradual upward trajectory of the federal funds rate would be appropriate." To convey this message, officials altered their statement to point to "further gradual increases," according to the minutes. However, the Fed minutes don't incorporate recent signs of rapidly rising inflation, which could make the Fed more inclined to hike rates faster than the three that Wall Street is forecasting, some market participants speculated.

Pound briefly tops $1.40 as Bank of England officials see pickup in U.K. wages
The pound briefly rose above $1.40 Wednesday afternoon in London as Bank of England policy makers said salaries for Britons appear to be strengthening, a view they outlined in this month's quarterly inflation report. "A pick up in wages is starting to take root," Andrew Haldane, the central bank's chief economist, told a Treasury committee meeting. Wage pressures were weak early in 2017, he said, and "arithmetically, given what we've seen over the past few months, it's very likely average weekly earnings growth will nudge up to have a '3' in front of it, which is our forecast for Q1." Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said there's been steady firming in private-sector earnings excluding bonuses. "As we get towards full unemployment ... we are seeing a variety of indicators that are consistent with the firming of wage pressures," said Carney. The pound hit $1.4010 as the policy makers spoke, but has since fallen back to $1.3975. Data released Wednesday showed wage growth grew 2.5% in the three months to December. Earlier Wednesday, sterling was the worst performer among major U.S. dollar rivals, driving to a low of $1.3905 after an unexpected rise in the U.K. unemployment rate, to 4.4%.
