    “That said, it does seem as if this will be a gradual process. On Tuesday, minutes to the discount rate meeting held by Federal Reserve Banks ahead of the FOMC showed the NY Fed board was one of two boards not voting for a discount rate hike in December. However, with the vote at the actual FOMC meeting having been unanimous we do not think the discount rate meeting vote is a reliable indicator of prospects for tightening in March.
