    Release Date: September 13, 2012

    For immediate release
    Information received since the Federal Open Market Committee met in August suggests that economic activity has continued to expand at a moderate pace in recent months.* Growth in employment has been slow, and the unemployment rate remains elevated.* Household spending has continued to advance, but growth in business fixed investment appears to have slowed.* The housing sector has shown some further signs of improvement, albeit from a depressed level. *Inflation has been subdued, although the prices of some key commodities have increased recently. Longer-term inflation expectations have remained stable.

    Consistent with its statutory mandate, the Committee seeks to foster maximum employment and price stability.* The Committee is concerned that, without further policy accommodation, economic growth might not be strong enough to generate sustained improvement in labor market conditions.* Furthermore, strains in global financial markets continue to pose significant downside risks to the economic outlook.* The Committee also anticipates that inflation over the medium term likely would run at or below its 2 percent objective.

    To support a stronger economic recovery and to help ensure that inflation, over time, is at the rate most consistent with its dual mandate, the Committee agreed today to increase policy accommodation by purchasing additional agency mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $40 billion per month.* The Committee also will continue through the end of the year its program to extend the average maturity of its holdings of securities as announced in June, and it is maintaining its existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from its holdings of agency debt and agency mortgage-backed securities in agency mortgage-backed securities.* These actions, which together will increase the Committee’s holdings of longer-term securities by about $85 billion each month through the end of the year, should put downward pressure on longer-term interest rates, support mortgage markets, and help to make broader financial conditions more accommodative.*

    The Committee will closely monitor incoming information on economic and financial developments in coming months.* If the outlook for the labor market does not improve substantially, the Committee will continue its purchases of agency mortgage-backed securities, undertake additional asset purchases, and employ its other policy tools as appropriate until such improvement is achieved in a context of price stability.* In determining the size, pace, and composition of its asset purchases, the Committee will, as always, take appropriate account of the likely efficacy and costs of such purchases.

    To support continued progress toward maximum employment and price stability, the Committee expects that a highly accommodative stance of monetary policy will remain appropriate for a considerable time after the economic recovery strengthens.* In particular, the Committee also decided today to keep the target range for the federal funds rate at 0 to 1/4 percent and currently anticipates that exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate are likely to be warranted at least through mid-2015.

    Voting for the FOMC monetary policy action were: Ben S. Bernanke, Chairman; William C. Dudley, Vice Chairman; Elizabeth A. Duke; Dennis P. Lockhart; Sandra Pianalto; Jerome H. Powell; Sarah Bloom Raskin; Jeremy C. Stein; Daniel K. Tarullo; John C. Williams; and Janet L. Yellen. *Voting against the action was Jeffrey M. Lacker, who opposed additional asset purchases and preferred to omit the description of the time period over which exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate are likely to be warranted.

    I threw in the towel a few years ago as I was hurt by low interest rates. But be careful to retain a buffer as we are floating on massive liquidity after all, which might disappear quickly when policies change. Asia will inflate until it is no longer attractive to business and US gets the chance to grow.

    Just as market expected, 40b of MBS buying per month ... Pimco is holding lots of MBS ....

    Gross,via Twitter, called that “A big #” that amounts to 35% of average monthly mortgage origination. Investment-wise, Gross said to focus on 30-year lower coupon MBS and that he expects Treasury/mortgage spreads to narrow further, which would certainly be to Pimco’s benefit based on its current holdings.

    @focus, would MAS depeg from US Fed rate .. I know it is unthinkable

    my own guess, i am not working in finance to know the intricacies.
    - Currencies are already weighted in a basket and govt maintains competitives thru currency value relative to the other countries thru adjusting the basket.

    - MAS and Fed Rate needs to be maintain in my opinion as the govt will not want a carry-trade to appear like what happen for Australia currency versus yen and us. This will jeopardise the currency control(basket weightage) if too much money flow in to take advantage of the spread. ie. we want capital coming in to buy productive assets , not take advantage of the interest rate spread and earn free money.

    - This is often mentioned as the unholy trinity .. and singapore has chosen to favour soverign monetary control and free capital inflow over fixed interest rate. Therefore, we are ok to take our cue from the big brothers of the world in terms of liquidity and interest rate ssetting.

    I read this para 5 times and had hard time to understand.
    Could u provide the link.
    I dun hv Pimco, somehow, decided not to buy, cannot recall the reason...
    so is the QE3 good for Pimco? After Pimco sell their MBS, what can they do? they need to buy lower coupon? then yield drop further???
