After buying a significant amount of bonds worth trillions of dollars to support the economy, the Federal Reserve stands at a crossroads. Should the regulator unveil more stimulus during the upcoming meeting? That’s the main question, which attracts traders’ attention. On the one hand, we see that the Fed’s actions and the interest rate near zero are supporting the economy and encouraging the markets. On the other hand, rising cases of coronavirus in the US show the economy may come through a lot before a complete recovery. Therefore, further supportive actions, including additional bond purchases and careful policy guidance by the Federal Reserve may be needed.

  • If the Federal Reserve is pessimistic, the USD may weaken;
  • If the Federal Reserve is optimistic, the USD may strengthen.
