The federal open market committee met for the last time of 2010 today.
There were no major surprises coming out aftetwards, as there has not been much time that has passed since the implementation of QE2. Discussions on the outcome and unemployment dominated the day and bench marks were set as to what will be the determining factors for further implementation in the future, if needed.
A date to keep in mind for all investors will be Jan. 4th 2011. This is the day that the minutes from todays meeting will be released for the public to see. This data will put a magnifying glass on what the Fed is paying attention to in order for a conclusion to come about regarding the success or failure of QE2.
