Federal Reserve Leaves Rates Unchanged

No new policies or actions


The Federal Reserve on Wednesday provided a slightly more upbeat view of the economy but said it had decided not to scale back the aggressive steps it took last month to stimulate a still-sputtering recovery.

Fed policymakers announced no change in policy and no new action at 2:15 p.m. ET, after a two-day meeting in Washington, D.C.
