FED (Federal Reserve) Market News

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is the monetary policymaking body of the Federal Reserve System (the Fed). The Federal Reserve is the world's most powerful and market-moving central bank. Its policies set the tone for economic developments in the United States and globally that have a direct impact on fixed-income, currency and equity markets. The FOMC formulates monetary policy to promote stable prices and economic growth. It does this by setting a target for the federal funds rate, the interest rate that banks charge one another for short-term loans. In simple terms, the FOMC manages the nation's money supply. Ahead of each Fed meeting, MNI publishes a comprehensive preview and following the meeting a review.
