  • Fed's Kashkari: Maximum employment means at the very least back to pre-COVID levels of employment
  • Fed's Kashkari: - I am opposed to rate hikes at least through 2023 - The labor market is still in a deep hole; it will take some time to get people reattached to the work force
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed's interest rate dot plot has provided too-hawkish guidance in the past, I am in favor of getting rid of it - I don't believe the Delta variant of COVID will force the US to return to lockdown
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed is in a decent financial position, therefore it is fine to talk about tapering monthly asset purchases - I am not seeing evidence of unanchored inflation expectations, but if that does occur then we would need to adjust
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The benefits of reducing MBS purchases first would be modest - It may take longer than September to judge progress on labor supply
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Fed funds rate should remain unchanged through 2023 - When it is time to taper, the best case scenario is to stick to the same plan as before
  • Fed's Kashkari: - Inflationary indicators have been higher than predicted, but this is expected to be temporary - Although the success against COVID is inspiring, it is still too early to declare victory

The GBP/USD continues to trade inside of a 56 pip trading range this morning, between key values of support and resistance. The pair has already traversed the range once, after bouncing off the S3 Camarilla pivot point found at 1.5187 in early trading. This range bound activity is not surprising as the FOMC meeting minutes for October are set to be released later this afternoon at 19:00 GMT. Many traders are waiting for this event to determine the future direction of the U.S. Dollar. If the news substantially increases market volatility, it may potentially cause the pair to breakout. However, in the meantime traders may continue to monitor the range for potential trading opportunities.

Traders should also watch today’s R4 and S4 pivot points in the event a breakout occurs on the previously mentioned news. In the event that the GBP/USD trades above the R4 Pivot point at a price of 1.5257, this would establish a new weekly high for the pair. A move to this point would be the first bullish breakout in five trading periods and traders looking for a 1-x extension of the range may consider initial targets near 1.5313. Alternatively, in the event of a bearish breakout, traders will look for prices to decline below the S4 pivot point at 1.5164. In this scenario, a 1-x extension of the range places the GBP/USD at weekly lows at a price of 1.5108.
