The Federal Reserve decided to stick to its current policies Wednesday, but indicated the United States economy is slowing and that more action could be in the cards soon.
Since Fed policymakers last met six weeks ago, data has shown the recovery slowed and hiring remained tepid. The economy grew at a paltry 1.5% annual rate in the second quarter, and employers added just 80,000 jobs in June.
The central bank said that economic activity “decelerated” in its policy statement released Wednesday afternoon and reiterated its former guidance, forecasting it is likely to hold interest rates near “exceptionally low levels” at least through late 2014.
