"The stance of monetary policy remains accommodative, thereby supporting strong labour market conditions and a sustained return to 2% inflation", the Fed said. While leaving rates unchanged as expected at the conclusion of its two-day meeting in Washington on Wednesday, it added a second reference to hammer the message home.

"On a 12-month basis, both overall inflation and inflation for items other than food and energy have moved close to 2%", the statement said.
