  • This Week’s Fed Meeting: Pressure on Powell to Sound Dovish, but Not Too Dovish

    This Week’s Fed Meeting: Pressure on Powell to Sound Dovish, but Not Too Dovish

    Ahead of the meeting, investors are expressing concerns about the U.S. economy and whether the Fed would hike further after December. As recent as September, the Fed came out as a little too optimistic about the economy next year. At this meeting, they may come down a little on their assessment of future economic growth. Investors aren’t expecting anything new from the Bank of Japan (BOJ). Look for policymakers to leave its benchmark rate unchanged at -0.1%. Japan is also scheduled to release its latest inflation data. The Bank of England (BOE) is expected to keep interest rates unchanged at Thursday’s meeting. Policymakers are holding back on raising rates at this meeting because of recent mixed economic data and fears over Brexit.

    Forex Daily Outlook – December 14, 2018

    The Euro continued to trade sideways during the Thursday’s session, as the market looks confused with the Federal Reserve’s stance and some of its comments lately on the interest rate hike. The 1.13 level underneath and 1.1450 level above will be the major support and resistance point for the market. The British Pound rallied a bit during yesterday’s session but is likely to experience significant resistance above as both 200 Day EMA line and 1.27 level has turned resistive.
