The Federal Reserve said Wednesday it did not plan to raise interest rates in the near future, signaling it expects economic growth in the United States to slow down from its recent breakneck speed. European stock markets rose some after the news that interest rates in the United States would remain steady, as did markets in China, India, and Japan. The U.S. Dow Jones Industrial Average saw a slight increase Thursday morning.
