The Federal Open Market Committee last month announced the third round of quantitative easing in which the Fed would purchase $40 billion of mortgage debt per month until the economy showed "sustained improvement." The main interest rate is now forecasted to remain near zero until at least mid-2015.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke has recently pledged to sustain record stimulus even after the U.S. economy has strengthened, but at the same time does not expect the "economy to be weak through" 2015. "We expect that a highly accommodative stance of monetary policy will remain appropriate for a considerable time after the economy strengthens," Bernanke said in a recent speech in Indianapolis.
