What to Watch from the Fed Meeting

Wall Street Journal: “The Federal Reserve concludes a two-day policy meeting Wednesday, the first with Janet Yellen officially at the helm. The results of the meeting will unfold in two phases. At 2 p.m. EDT, the Fed will release a revised policy statement describing the Fed’s view of economic conditions, its plans for its $65 billion monthly bond-buying program and its expectations for the path of short-term interest rates, which have been set near zero since December 2012. Also at 2 p.m. it will release updated forecasts for growth, inflation, unemployment and interest rates. Then at 2.30 p.m. Fed Chairwoman Yellen will hold her first press conference. Her predecessor, Ben Bernanke, took questions for an hour. We’ll see if she follows suit.”
