• In a statement, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) said that if the incoming
information broadly supports the committee's expectation of ongoing improvement in US labor
market conditions and inflation moving back toward its longer-run objective, the committee will
likely reduce the pace of asset purchases in further measured steps at future meetings. However,
asset purchases are not on a preset course, and the committee's decisions about their pace will
remain contingent on the committee's outlook for the labor market and inflation as well as its
assessment of the likely efficacy and costs of such purchases. To support continued progress
toward maximum employment and price stability, a highly accommodative stance of monetary
policy remains appropriate at this juncture, the FOMC said. The committee was of the view that it
will be appropriate to maintain the current zero to 1/4 percent target range for the federal funds
rate for a considerable time after the asset purchase program ends, especially if projected inflation
continues to run below the committee's 2% longer-run goal, and provided that longer-term
inflation expectations remain well anchored
