    "The Committee anticipates that it will be appropriate to raise the target range for the federal funds rate when it has seen some further improvement in the labor market and is reasonably confident that inflation will move back to its 2 percent objective over the medium term," the FOMC said in a statement.

    Dollar felt the pressure and was seen trading lower against other major currencies on Friday.
