Key Market Driver: FOMC Statement

Key Market Driver: FOMC Statement

What will happen?

The FOMC, a committee within the Federal Reserve, will hold an important meeting and press conference on September 22 at 21:00 MT time (GMT+3). FOMC’s comments will hugely affect the US dollar and thus all the pairs with the USD and US indices such as S&P 500 (US500), Nasdaq (US100), etc. This committee will discuss what time to start reducing bond buys and hiking interest rates.

Why is it important?

All the market participants are waiting eagerly for this moment as it will bring volatility to the markets. However, most analysts don’t expect any hawkish moves from the Fed this time as the US Inflation Rate came out lower than expected and it can ease pressure on the Fed.

Last time, the Federal Reserve was dovish. Therefore, the USD weakened and EUR/USD surged by 300 points only in 1 hour! After that, EUR/USD continued rising further as the Fed meeting has a long-term effect on the markets.

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.
