Monetary Policy
Fed policy makers took an important yet incremental step in March, when the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) excluded the word “patient” from its forward guidance, spurring speculation that a move to tighten is increasingly imminent. But the committee said in its March meeting statement that this change is no indication that it has decided on the timing of the first hike in the short-term federal funds rate since June 2006. The FOMC also reaffirmed that it is unlikely to raise its target range for the rate at its April meeting.
