(Bloomberg) -- Federal Reserve officials discussed providing more guidance on their bond buying strategy during their Nov. 4-5 policy meeting.“Many participants judged that the Committee might want to enhance its guidance for asset purchases fairly soon,” according to meeting minutes published Wednesday by the Fed in Washington.“While participants judged that immediate adjustments to the pace and composition of asset purchases were not necessary, they recognized that circumstances could shift to warrant such adjustments,” the minutes showed. The Fed’s next scheduled meeting is Dec. 15-16.The U.S. central bank cut its benchmark interest rate to nearly zero in March at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic and ramped up crisis-era bond-buying programs to pump liquidity into the financial system and keep a lid on longer-term interest rates.The Fed is currently buying U.S. Treasury and mortgage-backed securities at a combined pace of about $120 billion per month, with purchases spread out evenly across maturities.The resurgence of the pandemic in the U.S. in recent weeks, alongside reduced odds of another large fiscal relief package due to U.S. election results that may leave control of the Senate in Republican hands, have weighed on the economic outlook and raised expectations that the Fed will take further action to support the economy.Data published Wednesday by the Labor Department showed a growing number of Americans filing for unemployment insurance over the last two weeks while a separate Commerce Department report revealed a drop in household income last month, underscoring the tenuous position of the economy ahead of the winter season.(Updates with more details in third paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

James Maddison has insisted “there is more to come” as he aims to secure Leicester a place in the Europa League knockout phase, after revealing his sadness over the death of Diego Maradona. Maddison is fully focused on guiding Leicester to their fourth successive win in European competition and staking a claim to force his way back into Gareth Southgate’s England squad. The £21 million attacking midfielder missed the end of last season after hip surgery and completed his first full 90 minutes in the Premier League since June at Liverpool on Sunday. Ahead of Leicester’s rematch with Sporting Braga on Thursday night, Maddison is convinced he can still take his game to another level. “I’m my own biggest critic so I’ll never say I’m at 100 percent. I’m definitely fitter but there is more to come from me,” he said. “I want to be scoring goals and getting assists to get my numbers up, as always. The team is doing well, which is always a positive, and I’ll just keep trying to play to the highest level I possibly can. “There are definitely still gears up to go and that’s me, I’m hard on myself. I watch the games back and get frustrated at myself sometimes at some things I do, and also be happy with other stuff I do. “I don’t think I’ll ever be fully satisfied with my form because of the type of person I am but I’ll keep trying to produce quality moments as regularly as I can.” Maddison was given the tragic news about Diego Maradona’s death shortly before the press conference in Braga and admitted the Argentina legend’s passing will be felt around the world. “It’s a very sad day for the world of football. I’m a football lover and growing up he was such an influential figure to watch back on the clips, especially in his prime like the 1986 World Cup,” he said “My dad is a graphic designer and currently working on an opus based on Diego Maradona. We’ve been having lots of conversations about him recently and watching lots of footage. “He’s one of the players I love watching so rest in peace, Diego.” Leicester will all but secure top spot and a place in next year’s knockout stages with a win over Braga, three weeks after the 4-0 victory at the King Power Stadium.
