Business Insider US financial markets are in free fall and stocks are on the verge of plunging after the US Federal Reserve released its monthly inflation report and Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen said the Fed was looking to keep its inflation rate near zero.
The Fed has been tightening monetary policy, but has kept its benchmark interest rate at 2%.
