Ratajczak Says Fed Rate Move Unlikely Until January 2012

Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Donald Ratajczak, an economic consultant at Morgan Keegan & Co., talks about the decision by Federal Reserve policy makers to maintain plans to buy $600 billion of Treasuries through June and the outlook for monetary policy. The central bank left its benchmark interest rate in a range of zero to 0.25 percent, where it's been since December 2008, and retained a pledge in place since March 2009 to keep it "exceptionally low" for an "extended period." Ratajczak speaks with Mark Crumpton on Bloomberg Television's "Bottom Line." (Source: Bloomberg) (Bloomberg)
