The US Federal Reserve moved to dismantle a pillar of crisis-era support for the world's biggest economy and stuck with its forecast to raise interest rates again this year, saying hurricane damage won't derail an otherwise healthy expansion.
Following the announcement, two-year and 10-year Treasury yields rose 5bps and 4bps to 1.44% and 2.27% respectively, while the dollar gained by 1% against a broad basket of currencies.
However, inflation continues to remain below 2 percent, despite increases in food and energy prices, which the Fed excludes from its calculations.
It maintained its guidance that one further interest rate hike was likely this year despite inflation coming in weaker than expected - adding timid price growth was being "closely" watched. Besides, the Fed hinted that one more interest rate hike may be introduced before the end of the year.

USA central bankers are counting on steady growth and low unemployment to raise inflation closer to their goal, which would support their policy of gradual tightening through interest-rate increases and a reversal of quantitative easing.
The decision to start selling was widely expected. That neutral rate dropped to 2.9 per cent in the new forecast, down from three per cent in the bank's June forecast.
Aside from the hurricanes, the US economic momentum has been picking up.
