Fed refers to it as a “Blackout Period.”
Federal Reserve policy limits the extent to which FOMC participants and staff can speak publicly or grant interviews during Federal Reserve blackout periods, which begin the second Saturday preceding a Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting and end the Thursday following a meeting.
The current “Blackout Period” is December 3rd through December 15th.
