How Fed comments will affect the USD?
The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its interest rate at 21:00 MT time on November 8.
In September, the Fed increased the interest rate by 25 basis points to 2.5%. The market doesn’t look for a rate hike this time. However, comments of the Federal Reserve will be highly important for the USD in times when Mr. Trump criticizes the Fed monetary policy.
• If the Fed is optimistic, the USD will rise.
• If the Fed is pessimistic, the USD will fall.
The Fed is ready to start tapering in November. Since the markets were expecting this and it wasn’t a surprise, the USD slumped allowing risk-on currencies and gold to rally up.
