The Fed kept monetary policy unchanged

Board of the U.S. central bank in August kept monetary policy unchanged, though indicated its willingness to push through another stimulus measures and support economic recovery. Wednesday's Fed meeting on assessment of the economy worsened, said that "slowed somewhat" and changed the tone compared to its assessment in June when he said that the economy "is growing moderately." He also expressed disappointment regarding the development of the labor market. He noted that "employment growth has been slow and the unemployment rate still increased."For some investors, the Fed's decision was disappointing because it expected further loosening of monetary policy. The central bank has shown its willingness to do more to support the beleaguered economy.

The Fed decided to leave the majority of the basic interest rate to lowest level of 0-0.25% and continue to extend the maturity of the bonds until the end of 2012. Intends to purchase bonds with a residual maturity of 6-30 years and sell the same amount of government bonds with a residual maturity of 3 years or less.The extension is designed to keep real interest rates low. Maintain the existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from the holdings of mortgage-backed securities. He reiterated that economic conditions, including lack of resource utilization and subdued inflation outlook in the medium term, require ultra-low federal funds rate at least until the end of 2014.
