Expect This Friday: Tim Seymour

Stocks closed lower Thursday following a signal that the Federal Reserve might be taking another look at its monetary policy, and EmergingMoney.com's Tim Seymour said he saw a signal there.

"Tomorrow is the day you have the selloff," he said on CNBC's "Fast Money." "Now the market starts to react to good data in a way which is very negative."

Seymour floated the idea that the Fed was just testing the waters.

"The Fed thinks about every word they say, and this tells why the Fed minutes are so important," he said. "I think this is a bit of a trial balloon."

Seymour also cited inclusion in the minutes of sentiment that conditions still warrant quantitative easing, although it could take a different form.

"They're not equating QE with zero interest," he said.
