Fed Signals Possibility of Rate Cuts

The Federal Reserve held the target range for the funds rate at 2.25-2.5 percent but dropped a promise to be "patient" in adjusting rates and signaled possible rate cuts of as much as half a percentage point later this year. The policymakers left economic projections for growth and unemployment mostly unchanged but the headline inflation was forecasted at just 1.5% for the year, down from the 1.8% estimated in March.
