Nonetheless, Marino Valensise, head of multi-asset and income at Baring Asset Management, called the minutes "extremely boring" and said investors learnt nothing.
"They (the Fed) know that monetary policy is not effective anymore, and this is a broader conversation," he told CNBC Thursday.
"I think that the odds for anything happening (from the Fed) before the end of the year are extremely low ... Even if inflation reaches the 2 percent (target), which is possible if not probable, they will not even act at that stage. They will allow 2.1 (percent), 2.3 (percent) type of inflation rates to be in the market and only then address the problem."
Instead, Valensise said global investors were monitoring the moves of the Fed, which was in turn monitoring what global markets were doing. Thus, both were held in a deadlock until the end of the year, according to the strategist.
