The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) held the Federal Funds Rate target range at 0% to 0.25%, as DE expected.

The FOMC also announced the start of Tapering.

Starting this month, the pace of purchases will be reduced by $15B ($10B for Treasuries and $5B for Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS)). This is exactly what DE expected.
