Washington (AP) The Fed is set to offer more relief for the sagging economy.
The Central Bank is expected to slash a key interest rate by between one-half and a full percentage point when it meets today in an effort to blunt the effects of an economic downturn.
There's a great deal of uncertainty surrounding what the central bank will do, other than the consensus that a rate cut of some kind is coming.
Rate cuts have been continuing since September. The fed's key rate has dipped from 5.25 percent to 3 percent over that time. In January alone, the fed cut the rate by 1.25 percentage points. It was the biggest one-month reduction in a quarter-century.
