I don’t know that there’s been a less anticipated meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee since back in the Bernanke days.

Brexit, lousy jobs report, you know the drill.

That said, I’m obliged by the business journalists’ code of conduct to mention that Chair Yellen et al. are indeed meeting today and tomorrow.

A mere 6 percent of economists surveyed by the Wall Street Journal think the Fed’s going to raise rates.
