News Headline Summary

Fed officials are likely to continue bond buying programmes in 2013 according to WSJ analysis

- Fed desire for substantial job gains has not yet been met.
- Likely to continue buying mortgage and treasury bonds.

Update details:

- These comments are not too surprising as the Fed has already committed to an open-ended programme when it initiated QE3. If the Fed changed their policy back to an outright bond buying programme and away from Operation Twist this would be seen as a dovish move and would support risk assets as well as treasuries.
