JOLTS Job Openings: Wednesday, 14:00. The number of job openings in the US economy is eyed by the Federal Reserve, even if it is a lagging indicator. In July, the number of openings remained above 6 million annualized, at 6.17 million, beating expectations. A level of 6.06 is on the cards now. 

FOMC Meeting Minutes: Wednesday, 18:00. In the September, meeting, the announced the beginning of reducing its balance sheet, as widely expected. They also left their rate hike projections unchanged for 2017 (one more hike) and 2018 (3 hikes). The eagerness to continue raising rates comes despite slower inflation, something that Fed Chair Yellen described as a “mystery”. The minutes from that meeting are released now. It is important to note that the text is edited until the very last minute, leaving room for sending the desired message to markets. The focus will be on how worried they are of low inflation.
