In a statement released last Thursday the Fed announced it would purchase $85 billion in bonds a month for the rest of 2012. In 2013, the Fed will then continue to purchase $40 billion per month of mortgage backed securities indefinitely until they believe the economy does not require the support. Also the benchmark interest rate is to remain low till at least mid-2015, six months longer than previously planned.
"These actions, which together will increase the Committee's holdings of longer-term securities by about $85 billion each month through the end of the year, should put downward pressure on longer-term interest rates, support mortgage markets, and help to make broader financial conditions more accommodative," the Fed statement said.
