Jeremy Glaser: For Morningstar, I’m Jeremy Glaser and welcome to the week ahead, our quick take on what investors should have on their radar screens for the week starting May 16. 

The minutes of the Fed’s May meeting are due on Wednesday, and will provide a glimpse into the central bank's rationale behind not raising rates but leaving their options open for June. Don't expect anything groundbreaking, but look out for discussions of how international developments are playing into the committee's thought process and how they are viewing inflation.
