Parsing The Fed

Wednesday, January 31, 2007 | 06:15 PM

The WSJ notes the differences between today's Fed statement and that of December's:

"THE FED'S STATEMENTS reflect how the members of the central bank's Federal Open Market Committee perceive the economy. The slightest changes are scrutinized for clues about where interest rates may be headed. The Jan. 31 statement announced that the Fed was keeping rates steady at 5.25%, its fifth pause in a row after 17 increases in 17 meetings. The Fed's language reflected what it sees as a pickup in the economy, but reiterated that any rate increases will depend on new data."
