The Federal Reserve Bank of New York said Wednesday it would buy $18 billion in Treasury securities in operations to take place through mid-September.

The announcement by the New York Fed Wednesday comes after Tuesday’s gathering of the Federal Open Market Committee.

The Fed’s action has been attended by controversy, with many in financial markets seeing it as insufficient in the face of an economic recovery that appears to be sputtering out. U.S. stock prices were under considerable pressure Wednesday, reflecting the market’s anxiety over the economic outlook.
