As the economy strengthens, the Fed must begin to end its exceptionally expansionary monetary policy of the last half decade. It will begin by halting its purchases of $85 billion/month in Treasuries and mortgage-backed-securities. Second, it will stop reinvesting interest and principal on its holdings. Third, it will start raising overnight interest rates and lastly it will slowly liquidate its vast holdings of long-term debt. This process will take years.
