We all are eagerly waiting for the FOMC statement because it‘s going to alter the direction of Forex inflows. Thus, for today, there is an ignited topic of concern and the points issued in the FOMC statement.

As it was anticipated that the FOMC would not change the benchmark interest rate of 0-0.25% and this anticipation becomes true, as they remain stick to their decision.

FOMC decided to extend the asset purchase program closing date until March, and sustain the program size, but they had not stated that the economy has regained its speedy recovery.

They also extended the MBS Agency purchases up to March 2010 with the same program size. The decision regarding extension of MBS purchase is obvious, as the Treasury Program will phase out steadily.

The comments of FOMC on the economic stability are reflecting little improvements as the data show, but overall the conditions are still hovering.

Overall, the FOMC statements are pointing towards moderate economic and Forex ease with long way to go to pick the interest rate at their usual position until 2010 Q4 as per near expectations.
