In Yellen's last meeting, Fed leaves interest rates unchanged

During the first three years of her tenure, in particular, Yellen repeatedly found reasons to argue that the Fed should delay raising interest rates, extending the Fed's stimulus campaign. Like the proverbial frog in the stovetop pot, investors found it easy to ignore the slow and steady increases. This is in contrast to the contentious debates and closer votes over Janet Yellen's confirmation in 2014 and Ben Bernanke's confirmation for a second term in 2010.

"Still somewhere between two and three [rate hikes this year] is what people are expecting", said Ian Winer, head of equities at Wedbush.

Also important to Fed officials, investors' expectations of future inflation rose in January.

The committee upgraded its near-term outlook for inflation, saying it expected year-on-year readings to "move up this year" before stabilising around its 2 per cent goal in the medium term. This backdrop would possibly lead participants to anticipate additional progress in labor markets, a return of inflation to 2 percent and more policy normalization. The threats to the dollar's world reserve currency status will increase as concerns about U.S. government and private sector debt, as well as resentment over U.S. militarism and protectionism, grow. Powell is set to be sworn in Monday at 8 a.m. Synchronized growth in major regions across the global economy has helped energize the U.S. economy. However, for the year, the data showed that inflation increased by 1.7%, down from November's reading of 1.8%. Dissension in the immediate past was typically tied to decisions to raise rates, not hold them.
