During the meeting, Commissioners highlighted the need for these regulations in light of numerous technical glitches that have occurred in recent years, including the 2010 flash crash, the 2012 glitch from Knight Capital that led to a $461 million loss and the 2013 shutdown of the Nasdaq tape.

...

Fellow Democratic Commissioner Kara Stein also stated concern about leaving out broker dealers and many alternative trading centers that trade equities and fixed income securities.

"I am disappointed in this missed opportunity because so many important trading centers are left out," Stein said, adding the regulation ignored intraday proprietary trading firms.

They also expressed concern that inflation, which has been running below the Fed's target of 2 percent, could drift lower because of falling energy prices and a strengthening U.S. dollar.

...

The Fed decided to keep the "considerable time" wording because officials worried that its removal could be misinterpreted and cause markets to drive interest rates higher and harm the recovery.

Private economists do not expect the Fed to begin raising interest rates until mid-2015 and nothing revealed by the discussion in the minutes was likely to alter their view.''
