12:55 EDTFed announces new securities purchases, monetary policy criteria
The Fed's Open Market Committee announced that it would buy $45B of "longer term" Treasury securities per month after its initial program of buying such securities expires at the end of December. Furthermore, the central bank will continue to reinvest principal payments from its current holdings into agency mortgage-backed securities. Moreover, the Fed will resume rolling over maturing Treasury securities at auction and continue buying $40B of additional mortgage backed securities per month. The Fed will continue buying securities if the employment outlook doesn't improve in coming months, the committee added. As expected, the Fed left the target range for the federal funds rate at 0%-0.25%. In a new step that had been discussed as a possibility but not necessarily expected by analysts, the central bank adopted monetary policy thresholds. The Fed anticipates that it will keep interest rates exceptionally low "at least as long as the unemployment rate remains above 6.5%, inflation one or two years in the future is projected to be no more than 0.5% above the Fed's 2% long-term goal, and longer-term inflation expectations remain well-anchored." The Fed had previously said that rates would remain exceptionally low through at least mid-2015. As far as the economy, the central bank stated that the economy continues to expand at a moderate pace, excluding weather events. Household spending has continued to increase, but business' investments have slowed, the Fed reported. As usual, one committee member, Jeffrey Lacker, voted against the Fed's action.

07:27 EDTU.S. equity futures quiet in early trading
U.S. equity futures are lower this morning to begin the week. The S&P hit a record high on Friday and investors hope the market can continue its advance. Friday’s jobs data provided evidence the economy is growing at a slow to moderate pace. The President is scheduled to lay out plans this week for expanding the U.S. military campaign against ISIS including possible airstrikes in Syria. The domestic economic calendar is quiet today, with the consumer credit report, scheduled for release this afternoon, the lone economic data point.

03:05 EDTFX Update: Sterling took a hit
FX Update: Sterling took a hit at the commencement of trade on news that the Yes for Scottish independence vote had taken the lead for the first time in polls. The referendum will take place on Sep-18. Cable dove sharply from 1.6325 to a 10-month low of 1.6164 and EUR-GBP spiked above 0.8000 before settling back just under here. Elsewhere, trade was pretty quiet. EUR-USD remained heavy in ebbing south of 1.2950, finding support at 1.2931, but remained above last week's post-ECB meeting low of 1.2920. USD-JPY remained well within its range from Friday, consolidating in the low 105s. News that Japan's Q2 GDP was revised down to -7.1% from -6.8% didn't have much FX impact. Stocks in Asia were mixed-to-higher despite Japan's data, as China trade figures showed above-expectations exports.
