The Fed makes its last decision of the year. It is of high importance  because it is the first one after QE ended and it is accompanied by a press conference by Chair Yellen and updated Fed forecasts. The focus is on  two words related to the interest rate: “considerable time”. Will the Fed look at improving employment or at falling inflation? Its two mandates are going in  different directions, and this could certainly be a cause for volatility.
