Will the shutdown hurt some of the data flows at the Fed, in particular the ones we need? It will remain open since it is not a gov. agency, but some of the data apparently is passed over from gov. agencies.

From a Google blurb:

'4. What about the Federal Reserve?

The U.S. central bank is operating as normal because it’s funded by its own revenue stream. The Fed’s December report on industrial production, which incorporates Labor Department figures, remains on track for release Jan. 18. The consumer credit report includes student-loan data from the Education Department, which is open. But if the shutdown continues until the Fed’s next policy meeting on Jan. 29-30, members won’t have fourth-quarter GDP in hand ...'

Note the Jan. 18 date, a bit later than usual.
