"My sense is that the Fed has emerging markets on their radar screen, but so far it's not signaling any major problems for them to rise to the level to be in their statement," he added.
In short, say analysts, the fact that the Fed omitted a mention of the emerging-market turmoil in their statement should be taken as a sign that they do not view the current bout of turmoil as a systemic risk that could hurt the U.S. economic outlook.

"I was not surprised that the Fed didn't comment on emerging markets because it was a recent development and doesn't represent a sustained development," Peter Bain, president and CEO at Old Mutual Asset Management in Boston told CNBC Asia's "Cash Flow."
Quincy Krosby, a market strategist for Newark, New Jersey-based Prudential Financial, added this: "Just because they were not mentioned in the statement doesn't mean the Fed has closed its eyes to what's happening in emerging markets."
"Central banks have regular contact with each other and if the turmoil in emerging markets was viewed as systemic then the Fed would act. Right now the perception is that the problems are confined to individual markets such as the Ukraine, Turkey or Argentina," she added.
