Fed keeps interest rates unchanged; no hint on timing of next rate hike

WASHINGTON: The Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged on Wednesday, but kept the door open to a hike in June while showing little sign it was in a hurry to tighten monetary policy amid an apparent slowdown in the US economy .

In a statement that largely mirrored the one issued after its last policy meeting in March, the US central bank's rate-setting committee described an improving labor market but acknowledged that economic growth seemed to have slowed.

It also said it was closely watching inflation and noted that global economic headwinds remained on its radar, though it made no mention of the risks they posed, as it had last month.

"The committee continues to closely monitor inflation indicators and global economic and financial developments," the Fed said following a two-day meeting.

Prices for US equities edged up after the announcement, while the dollar was little changed against a basket of currencies.

At what point will China stop lending the U.S. money?

At present, the U.S debt to the Chinese government is quickly approaching $1 trillion in treasury bills. At what point will China decide that the U.S. cannot pay them back in full, and stop buying treasury bills?

When they start buy more of the stuff the make themselves and no longer need a trade surplus to make their economy grow so do not need to fiddle with the exchange rate to keep their stuff cheap when priced in $. The time may be coming soon.
