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

The Federal Reserve policymakers have agreed that the tapering emergency pandemic support should start either mid-November or mid-December, the minutes from the latest FOMC meeting showed. Officials stressed that if the economic recovery remained broadly on track, a gradual tapering process that concluded around the middle of next year would likely be appropriate. Participants also considered an illustrative path of tapering, including monthly reductions in the pace of asset purchases, by $10 billion in the case of Treasury securities and $5 billion in the case of agency mortgage-backed securities (MBS). The Fed left the fed funds rate steady at 0-0.25% and bond-buying at the $120 billion monthly pace during the September 2021 meeting.
