WASHINGTON adidas superstar paint splatter uk , Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday kept the interest rate unchanged, but signaled that there might be one more interest rate hike this year.

The central bank also announced on the same day that it will start to unwind its 4.5-trillion-U.S.-dollar balance sheet in October, as the market expects.

"We're working down our balance sheet, because we feel that's stimulus that in some sense is no longer needed," said Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen at a press conference after the Fed concluded its two-day policy meeting on Wednesday.
