Patient means considerable period means dollar largely unmoved

The Fed changed the language in their statement, as many were suspecting, but not the meaning.

Next meeting, they may be patient for a considerable period, which will have markets even more confused. After the initial volatility, the dollar has settled little changed from pre-meeting levels.
