EU Market View
FOMC left rates on hold as expected, sees rates unchanged at least through 2023 and maintained the asset purchase schedule. The USD was choppy in the aftermath of the FOMC, although the DXY has since strengthened and temporarily broke above 93.50. Looking ahead, highlights from macroeconomic calendar include Eurozone CPI, US building permits, weekly jobs, ECB's de Guindos speech.
