"But more important than the taper "surprise" was the unusually dovish language in which the Fed decided to wrap its seemingly bitter pill. Today's statement goes significantly farther than any prior communications in assuring that interest policy, its main monetary tool, will remain far more accommodative, for far longer, than anyone previously predicted. In fact, they have now committed themselves to keep rates at zero until "well after" the unemployment rate has fallen below 6.5%. On this score the Fed is not simply moving the goalposts, they are running away with them." - in Finance Townhall
