In remarks at the end of last week, Powell announced that the central bank would be patient in raising interest rates, noting that it would wait for economic growth developments due to mixed signals from the market and data.
The Fed's latest record also showed that some members believe that a reduction in inflationary pressures means that the bank can "be patient with further tightening monetary policy."
Later in the day, inflation data in the United States will be released from December.
