How to Trade on FOMC Press Conference?

2021-09-22 • Updated

What will happen?

FOMC press conference is among the primary methods the Fed uses to communicate with investors regarding monetary policy. It covers in detail the factors that affected the most recent interest rate and other policy decisions, along with commentary about economic conditions such as the future growth outlook and inflation. Most importantly, it provides clues regarding future monetary policy.

Today, on September 22, traders await FOMC’s tapering decision as it will make a huge impact on the markets. In this article let’s discuss two possible variants of the FOMC statement and imagine how they will affect the market.

Possible variants

  • Dovish statement. Powell says that the US economy still needs stimulus and doesn’t call any dates when the tapering might begin. In this case, the US dollar will get weaker.
  • Hawkish statement. Powell calls the possible date of stimulus tapering (the further the date, the shorter will be the effect on the markets) and says that the government needs to take control over inflation. In this case, the US dollar strengthens.
