Title - Forex Outlook Ahead of FOMC
Created 09/18/2019 at 09:05AM
USD and JPY are the top G10 FX gainers today while SEK and NOK are the top losers, down -0.48% and -0.42% vs the dollar.
The dollar remains firm ahead of the Federal Reserve meeting where expectations are of a 25bp interest rate cut. The focus will be on dot plots with any downward revision likely to cause a dip in the dollar.
Cable was rejected once again from near six-week highs (1.2528) as no-deal uncertainty remains. The investors will now focus on the Bank of England policy meeting where BoE is expected to keep rates at 0.75bp. That said, BoE is itself dependent on Brexit.
