Per the WSJ article: "Federal Reserve officials are barreling toward another interest-rate rise of 0.75 percentage point at their meeting Nov. 1-2 and are likely to debate then whether and how to signal plans to approve a smaller increase in December."
The WSJ article also notes that Fed governor Christopher Waller said in a speech earlier this month “We will have a very thoughtful discussion about the pace of tightening at our next meeting”.
