The Federal Reserve held interest rates steady this Wednesday, while also indicating it still expects one more hike before the end of the year and fewer cuts than previously indicated next year. The Fed is continuing to reduce its bond holdings, a process that has cut the central bank balance sheet by some $815 billion since June. The Fed’s bond selloff and interest rate hikes intended to fight inflation could affect investing strategy. The Federal Reserve announced it soon will begin reducing the pace of its monthly bond purchases, the first step toward pulling back on the massive amount of help it had been providing markets and the economy. The Fed will reduce its current $120 billion monthly bond-buying program by $15 billion a month.
