The Federal Reserve Open Market Committee (FOMC) released its decision on the federal funds rate earlier today and raised the rate by 25 bps to a range of 4.50-4.75%. Commentary indicated that inflation had moderated somewhat over the past few months but still remains elevated. Economic indicators have pointed to modest growth in spending and production coupled with a job market that has remained robust with relatively low unemployment.
The FOMC is firmly committed to achieving full employment and price stabilization, with a target inflation rate of 2% over the longer term. Committee members continue to observe a wide range of economic factors and are prepared to adjust monetary policy if the attainment of the goals is jeopardized.
