The US Federal Reserve following the meeting on Wednesday left unchanged the key interest rate and parameters of operations in the money market.
The rate of federal funds, reduced three times last year, will remain in the range of 1.5-1.75% per annum. This decision was unanimously adopted by 17 members of the open market committee of the American central bank.
Major currency pairs reacted weakly to published data. A more pronounced reaction was in gold and American stocks.
