Powell emphasized that the decision aimed to approach the Fed’s ultimate balance sheet level gradually, mitigating potential market disruptions.

“The decision to slow the pace of runoff does not mean that our balance sheet will ultimately shrink by less than it would otherwise, but rather allows us to approach its ultimate level more gradually,”

Powell stated during the post-meeting press conference.
