16:15 EDTThe Fed's QE3 - Dead but Not Forgotten:
The Fed's QE3 - Dead but Not Forgotten: The Fed wound down QE3 on schedule, and did not extend the program beyond the end of October. The "considerable time" reference for low rates was retained, but the reference to the labor market was updated to reflect progress, amid diminished concerns about underutilization of labor resources. The mix left the markets with an upbeat but slightly more hawkish impression, though none the wiser about just when the Fed will kick-start the tightening cycle.

14:25 EDTTreasury Action: yields shot to highs after the FOMC
Treasury Action: yields shot to highs after the FOMC allowed QE3 to expire as planned, while warming up to improved labor market conditions and also retaining "considerable time". The T-note yield cleared 2.36% from the 2.33% area, well up from session lows of 2.27%. The just issued 5-year yield ramped up to the 1.60% area from the 1.567% award rate on the new notes, confirming why the bond market was so cautious on getting caught holding that paper into the Fed decision. Meanwhile, stocks are mostly lower, though they could overcome their QE disappointment on the notion that the Fed is getting more confident about the recovery. The dollar has broken to session highs.

14:05 EDTFed says underutilization of labor resources 'gradually diminishing'
The Fed said in its statement, "On balance, a range of labor market indicators suggests that underutilization of labor resources is gradually diminishing. Household spending is rising moderately and business fixed investment is advancing, while the recovery in the housing sector remains slow. Inflation has continued to run below the Committee's longer-run objective. Market-based measures of inflation compensation have declined somewhat; survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations have remained stable."

FX Action: Perhaps some pre-FOMC jitters setting in as USD-JPY slips from session highs of 108.17, back into 108.05. The modest dip reportedly came on light volume, and can likely be attributed to last minute position pairing into the 14:00 EDT announcement.

12:30 EDTTreasury Action: yields remain elevated
Treasury Action: yields remain elevated ahead of the upcoming 5-year auction and the following FOMC announcement. The softness is mostly a lack of buying, according to sources, rather than outright selling, though there's also come concession being made ahead of the offering. Technicals have also turned a bit bearish too with the 10-year yield rising through the 2.30% level. However, the pricing in this very low volume trade isn't giving us much information.
