Stocks were little changed to start off Wednesday's session, taking a breather from a recent rally, as investors looked ahead to the release of a summary from the Federal Reserve's meeting in January.

The Fed said on Jan. 30 it will be "patient" in tightening monetary policy moving forward and kept interest rates unchanged. Investors will parse through the minutes, looking for more clues about how long the Fed plans to remain patient. The minutes are scheduled for release for 2 p.m. ET.
