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 that Tapering in January will be double the current pace.

The pace of purchases will be reduced by $30B in mid-January ($20B for Treasuries and $10B for Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS)). This is exactly what DE expected.
