FOMC Meeting Schedule (Tentative) for 2013

Earlier today, The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) released its tentative monetary policy meeting schedule for 2013. The FOMC doesn't always stick to the exact dates on the schedule (hence tentative), but they do always meet at least eight times per calendar year.

Why is this schedule important to you? Because it's at these monetary policy meetings that The FOMC votes on whether to raise, lower or make no changes to The Fed Funds Target Rate, and when the Fed Funds Target Rate changes, the U.S. Prime Rate (also known as the Fed, national or WSJ Prime Rate) will also change.

Here's the tentative schedule for 2013:

January 29-30, 2013

March 19-20, 2013

April 30 - May 1, 2013

June 18-19, 2013

July 30-31, 2013

September 17-18, 2013

October 29-30, 2013

December 17-18, 2013

January 28-29, 2014
