“Participants noted that if a decision to begin tapering purchases occurred at the next meeting, the process of tapering could commence with the monthly purchase calendars beginning in either mid-November or mid-December,” the Fed said in its minutes.

U.S. Federal Reserve officials broadly agreed last month the central bank could start tapering asset purchases in mid-November or mid-December, according to the minutes of the Fed’s recent policy meeting released Wednesday.

“Participants noted that if a decision to begin tapering purchases occurred at the next meeting, the process of tapering could commence with the monthly purchase calendars beginning in either mid-November or mid-December,” the Fed said in the minutes of its Sept. 21-22 meeting.

“Participants generally assessed that, provided that the economic recovery remained broadly on track, a gradual tapering process that concluded around the middle of next year would likely be appropriate,” the minutes said.

The Fed has pledged to continue its asset purchase program at least at the current pace of 120 billion U.S. dollars per month until “substantial further progress” has been made on employment and inflation. The central bank will hold its next policy meeting on Nov. 2-3.

Under plans discussed last month, the Fed would taper its 80 billion dollars in monthly U.S. Treasury purchases by 10 billion dollars a month, and it would reduce its 40 billion dollars in mortgage-backed securities purchases by 5 billion dollars a month, according to the minutes.

“Participants generally commented that the illustrative path provided a straightforward and appropriate template that policymakers might follow, and a couple of participants observed that giving advance notice to the general public of a plan along these lines may reduce the risk of an adverse market reaction to a moderation in asset purchases,” the minutes said.
