The minutes from the last FOMC meeting will be released today, so the Fed is on the front of everybody’s mind.  Fed President Charles Evans said this morning that the fundamentals of the U.S. economy are very strong and that we should probably get used to weak inflation because it might not get to the 2% objective.  All the same, he is calling for gradual rate hikes.  Mr. Evans is widely known as a dove when it comes to policy creation–meaning that he favors low rates and economic growth.  And here he is calling for higher interest rates.
