Dovish FOMC, BoE Rate Decision, Euro Finds a Bid - US Market Open

Dovish FOMC, BoE Rate Decision, Euro Finds a Bid - US Market Open

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Market Themes and Movers – FOMC, BoE Decision, Euro, JPY and NOK in Favour

USD: Wednesday’s FOMC meeting revealed a dovish US central bank with further interest rate hikes in 2019 now looking very unlikely. The Fed hinted at a 0.25% hike in 2020 but markets are now pricing-in a cut in rates in 2020 as growth concerns continue. The central bank also reigned in its bond normalization program with sales expected to stop by the end of September, three months earlier than had been expected by some market commentators. US Treasury yields fell to multi-month lows, dragging the US dollar down.

GBP: The Bank of England is fully expected to leave all monetary policy settings unchangedat today’s MPC meeting as Brexit continues to cloud the UK’s economic outlook. Recent jobs, wages and retail sales data has beaten market expectations and highlights a growing divergence between robust employment and weak economic growth. The Bank of England will need to tread carefully once/if Brexit is resolved.

EUR/JPY/NOK: Both the Euro and the Japanese Yen reacted positively to the outcome of the FOMC meeting and pushed ahead against the US dollar. While gains may be limited in the short-term, both may continue to find favour going forward and press through recent resistance levels. The Norges Bank raised interest rates by 0.25% to 1.0% today, as expected, and signalled another hike in H2 this year, boosting the value of the Norwegian Krone further.
