US housing market boost from Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve is likely to keep pumping billions of dollars a month into the US economy after a two day meeting in Washington.

The aim is to encourage businesses and households to spend and invest.

In February the number of new housing projects hit a four year high which spurred on some firms, especially in construction to start hiring again.
