$2trln stimulus from President Trump

Bread to the public

The deal that was struck by Donald Trump’s administration with the Senate amounts more than $2trln of tax exemptions and financial aid. Out of that, $350bln goes to small businesses, $500bln goes to back loans, and checks of $1,200 to almost every individual in the US. It is supposed to receive a confirmation vote on Wednesday and go to the President’s table for his signature to go into action.

Obama’s times

Just to compare, the 2008 crisis prompted Barack Obama’s administration to unfold an $800-million stimulus to lift economic activity. The fact that the current financial aid is 1.5 times bigger than this may mean several things. On the one hand, the virus-hit US economy may be perceived as (but not necessarily be) in a graver condition currently than it was in 2008. On the other hand, having the homework done (hopefully) after the last crisis, the Senate and President Trump’s administration may just be willing to go full-on against the virus in an effort to make the shortest possible crisis and recovery time.

Forex reaction

The market, generally, took this measure as a small sign of hope and strength. The risk-on mood got partially back, with the JPY giving room to the USD…


…and gold dropping its steam after its short rally when it started behaving like a normal safe-haven commodity – like gold, in other words.


Stocks reaction

S&P 500 has been consistently rising since Monday and currently is testing the resistance of the 50-period Moving Average at the level of 2455. Tactically, that’s a meaningful recovery as it is the first time since the beginning of March that the stock market index grows high enough to challenge the descending order of the three MAs. Needless to say, keep going.

FED and BOE Make Another Attempt to Beat Inflation

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
