The FOMC actually did not change the interest rate. However, the members of the committee revised their projections on inflations expectations.

On the one hand, this information caused the US dollar’s depreciation but on the other, it also supported American stock market indices. In addition, investors learnt the dynamics of the US industrial production and the retail sales.
