The Fed has announced its long-awaited interest rate decision.
The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) did not make any changes in interest rates and announced that it kept the interest rate constant in the range of 0% – 0.25%.
FED members predicted two rate hikes until 2023 on the dot chart. While the number of members expecting an increase in 2023 was 7 out of 18 members, this time the number increased to 13.
