In the United States, the authority to set interest rates is divided between the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve (Board) and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The Board decides on changes in discount rates after recommendations submitted by one or more of the regional Federal Reserve Banks. The FOMC decides on open market operations, including the desired levels of central bank money or the desired federal funds market rate.

Latest Updates

Federal Reserve officials agreed that the current interest rate stance is likely to remain unchanged for a period of time, despite raising concerns that low interest rates could exacerbate imbalances in the financial sector, minutes of the December policy meeting showed. Policymakers also pledged to discuss changes to the way the central bank manages liquidity in financial markets at future meetings, including the potential role of a standing repo facility, the setting of administered rates, and the composition of the Fed's holdings of Treasury securities over the longer run.
