FOMC Press Conference

The press conference of the Federal Open Market Committee takes place 30 minutes after the Fed's interest rate decision, and has two parts: a pre-prepared statement followed by open questions. Even if the Fed has left rates unchanged, or a change has been anticipated by the market, unexpected remarks during the press conference can still lead to a large market reaction.
