Last week was very interesting for the markets, as we saw the releases of the US Inflation and Disney’s earnings report. So let's see what we should await this week!
The FOMC Brings New Insights for the USD
What will happen?
The United States will publish the Federal Open Market Committee Meeting Minutes on November 24, at 21:00 GMT+2. This is a detailed report of the previous Fed's meeting that contains in-depth insights into the economic and financial conditions.
Why is it important?
As the market awaits the beginning of tapering and hawkish steps by the Federal Reserve, traders will be looking for a shift in the forecast for the next rate hikes, changes in the economic outlook, and, most importantly, the views on inflation. If the Federal Reserve confirms high inflation and makes steps towards tightening, the USD will gain.
