US DOLLAR OUTLOOK: FOMC RATE DECISION & QUARTERLY ECONOMIC PROJECTIONS TO SWAY USD PRICE ACTION

  • USD price outlook largely fixated on the Fed announcement due 16 September at 18:00 GMT
  • US Dollar might resume its bearish trend if FOMC officials like Chair Powell echo loose policy
  • DXY Index could rally if the S&P 500 VIX snaps sharply higher amid renewed risk aversion

The US Dollar will likely be front and center on FX trader radars over the next 24-hours. This is considering high-impact even risk facing USD price action due to the Federal Reserve announcement scheduled to cross market wires this Wednesday, 16 September at 18:00 GMT. Periodic Fed meetings tend to leave the US Dollar vulnerable owing to heightened potential for outsized moves. FOMC officials are expected to reveal updated economic projections (SEPs) tomorrow and Chair Jerome Powell will hold a press conference shortly after the press statement release.

SUMMARY OF ECONOMIC PROJECTIONS FROM THE JUNE 2020 FOMC MEETING

Fed Meeting Summary of Economic Projections Chart US Dollar Outlook

Chart Source: Federal Reserve

The FOMC is likely to reiterate the status quo of loose monetary policy and accommodative financial conditions, but US Dollar currency volatilitycould accelerate if guidance changes materially. In addition to the headline interest rate decision and SEPs, market participants might emphasize commentary on average inflation targeting (AIT) and yield curve control (YCC), which may weigh notably on the US Dollar as well.

USD PRICE OUTLOOK - US DOLLAR IMPLIED VOLATILITY TRADING RANGES (OVERNIGHT)

USD Price Outlook US Dollar Implied Volatility Trading Ranges for September 2020 Fed meeting

The S&P 500 VIX Index, or fear-gauge, has potential to serve as a bellwether for US Dollar direction due to the generally strong positive relationship held between the two anti-risk assets. Options-implied trading ranges are calculated using 1-standard deviation (i.e. 68% statistical probability price action is contained within the implied trading range over the specified time frame). In other words, options-implied trading ranges of technical support and resistance outlined above are estimated to contain spot price action 68% of the time.
