FOMC Meeting Minutes are in Focus

FOMC Meeting Minutes are in Focus

What will happen?

Federal Open Market Committee, a committee within the Federal Reserve System (the Fed), will reveal a detailed record of the most recent meeting on July 7 at 21:00 MT. Yes, the meeting itself has already passed, and the main outcome is known, but the details are still important.

The Fed surprised investors with its hawkish tone during that meeting. The central bank started a discussion of cutting bond buys and pointed to at least two interest rate hikes in 2023. Those words have pushed the USD up. Therefore, traders will watch the FOMC’s record closely to get hints on further Fed’s policy decision as it will influence the value of the US dollar, which is one of the most traded currencies in the Forex market.
