Markets Ahead of Fed Meeting

Markets Ahead of Fed Meeting

  • That day has come, guys! The Fed will hold a meeting at 21:00 GMT+3. It can be a highly impactful event. The markets expect the bank to hint about the timing of tapering. 
  • Fed Chair Jerome Powell holds a press conference at 21:30 GMT+3 which can become the main driver of the market reaction. Dovish comments will press the USD down, while comments about soon tightening will push the USD up. Look how markets reacted last time.
  • Concerns over China Evergrande Group’s debt crisis eased. The Hang Seng index has reversed up today and jumped back above 24,000. 
  • The Bank of Japan kept policy unchanged and reinforced expectations the BOJ will maintain its massive stimulus even as other countries are getting ready for withdrawal of financial support. As a result, the JPY dropped and USD/JPY rocketed above 109.50. 

Tech outlook

There was no room for USD/JPY to fall: the support line and the lower line of Bollinger Bands were the main barriers. USD/JPY will likely surge to the resistance level of 109.90, where two moving averages and midline of Bollinger Bands lie. The pair will struggle to cross this level, but if it jumps above it, it can rocket to 110.310.

GBP/USD has plunged dramatically. Now it has paused near 1.3650, and the RSI indicator signals that the pair has approached the oversold territory. If GBP/USD manages to break the psychological mark of 1.3700, it will jump to late August highs of 1.3760.

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.
