The December FOMC decision was broadly in line with expectations (and exactly in line with MNI's outlook for a slightly hawkish disappointment), with new asset purchase guidance but no change to the asset purchase program itself.
The Fed looks likely keep policy easy for a long time at current levels, and see the new guidance on asset purchases as adding to accommodation - but are also keeping something in reserve in case the economy deteriorates, rather than seeing any need to act now
