The Fed retained "considerable time" and "underutilization of labor" catch-phrases, but the hawkishly-predisposed Fisher joined Plosser's dissent. Staff projections lowered 2014 and 2015 GDP forecasts, but new median rate forecasts for 2017 and the long term (blue dots) stretched out to mid-4pct. Moreover, expectations for first rate hike in 2015 were reported by 14 members (12 prior), while those of first hike in 2016 are now 2 vs 3 prior. Finally, Fed chair Yellen in her press conference said its not fair to call Fed's forward guidance as calendar-based, and that the Fed will move sooner if it sees the need to do so, presumably conveying more data dependence. Tracking firmer USD, spot gold hit an 8-month lows below $1,225/oz.- China property sector figures took another turn for the worse. Aug new home prices m/m declined in 68 cities (record high) of 70 vs 64 prior. M/M decline of -1.1% was also 4th consecutive decline, while y/y growth slowed sharply to just 0.5% from 2.5% prior. Also of note out of China, PBoC offered yield in its CNY10B open market operations was set at 3.5% - down from 3.7% and widely interpreted as another sign of an easing bias. Shanghai Composite reversed its initial slide to trade higher by 0.5% once the repo rate offer yield was announced.- New Zealand Q2 GDP came in at a 1-year low of 0.7%, albeit slightly better than expected. Among the notable components, private consumption expenditure rose 1.2% v 0.1% prior, but exports slumped by -2.9% after rising 2.8%. NZD/USD traded off the lows on the release, rising about 30pips above $0.8110.- Japan trade deficit was not as severe as feared, coming in at a 3-month lows, with exports down -1.3% v -2.6% expected. Shipments to the US are down 4.4% despite the weak JPY and exports to China fell 0.2% after rising 2.3%, but exports to Europe remained positive at +5.6%. - Ahead of tomorrow's vote, Scotland referendum polls are still narrowly favoring the NO camp. YouGov poll on Scotland independence referendum stayed at 48% Yes / 52% No forecast. According to Survation poll, the NO vote (including undecided) moved up by 1pt to 53%.***Equities***US markets: - HNSN: Study finds Sensei Robotic System associated with statistically significant improved success rates compared with manual persistent AF Ablation; +13.9% afterhours- UNFI: Reports Q4 $0.67 v $0.65e, R$1.76B v $1.74Be; +3.1% afterhours- STLD: Guides Q3 $0.42-0.46 (ex acquisition) v $0.37e; +2.6% afterhours- FEYE: Signs agreement with Mandiant to Deliver Industry's First Global Security as a Service Solution; +0.1% afterhours- PIR: Reports Q2 $0.10 v $0.13e, R$418.6M v $427Me; -10.0% afterhours- FLXN: Announces Clinical Hold of FX006 Phase 2b Clinical Trial in Osteoarthritis of the Knee; -22.6% afterhours Notable movers by sector:- Consumer Discretionary: Oroton ORL.AU +7.1% (FY14 results)- Materials: Arrium Ltd ARI.AU -35.9% (capital raise); Jiaozuo Wanfang Aluminum Manufacturing 000612.CN -4.2% (aluminum futures lower)- Energy: AWE Ltd AWE.AU +13.7% (shareholder raises stake)- Industrials: Kubota Corp 6326.JP ++3.7% (analyst action)- Technology: Asahi Glass 5201.JP +1.5% (press speculation on Op profit); Sony Corp 6758.JP -9.8% (cuts guidance, halts dividend)- Healthcare: Guangdong Taiantang Pharmaceutical 002433.CN +1.1% (acquires medical e-commerce business)- Utilities: Korea Electric Power Corp 015760.KR +5.1% (sells HQ site) - Source
