The Fed used its policy statement to begin to pivot from stabilizing financial markets to stimulating the economy, saying that it would keep its current government bond-buying at least at the current pace of $120-B per month, in part to ensure “accommodative” financial conditions in the future

Chairman Powell said the Fed “is both confident and committed and determined” to modestly overshooting 2% inflation.
