Citing the slow pace of economic recovery and persistently high unemployment, the Federal Reserve on Jan. 26 unanimously decided to move forward with plans to purchase up to $600 billion in long-term Treasury bonds.

The central bank also reaffirmed its intent to keep short-term interests rates near zero for "an extended period." According to futures markets, investors believe the Fed will begin raising rates in the early part of next year.
