Wall Street is anxiously awaiting an announcement from the Federal Reserve.

Fed Chair Ben Bernanke will hold a press conference later this morning where he'll explain if the central bank will begin cutting back its program of buying bonds to stimulate the economy.

The Fed's actions could have repercussions on Main Street as well. Heidi Moore, U.S. finance and economics editor for The Guardian, joins the show to explain.
