All Eyes On The Fed

Very little movement was seen in both pairs EUR/USD and GBP/USD in the beginning of the week and before the FOMC meeting. In the euro we currently focus on a trading range between 1.08 and 1.06 while in the cable it will be interesting whether the pound also drops below 1.2330 and further towards 1.23. On the upside, resistance is seen at around 1.2550.

Today is Federal Reserve decision day and it is widely expected that the central bank will pause rate hikes. Instead, the focus will be on fresh economic projections and the dot plot forecast and whether another 2023 hike is in the cards. Traders expect that the Fed’s tightening campaign has ended. Thus, the U.S. dollar will rise if there are signals for further tightening, triggering a hawkish repricing of rate expectations.

The Fed decision and release of economic projections is scheduled for 18:00 UTC followed by the press conference 30 minutes later.
