Video: What to Expect and How to Trade the FOMC Decision

2014-10-28 23:52:00
John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist

Talking Points:

• The FOMC rate decision (Wednesday, 18:00 GMT) is this week's top scheduled event risk

• Cooler global growth trends and a stumble in financial markets has inspired a dovish view for the Fed

• This policy meeting will carry implications for both the Dollar and broader investor sentiment

The Fed rate decision is upon us. The implications of changed bearings for monetary policy are clear for the USDollar against the increasingly dovish lean by the ECB (Euro) and competitively hawkish BoE (Pound). However, there is perhaps greater weight to this event through its influence over broader risk trends and global financial markets. Stimulus has played a critical role in positioning over the past half decade. Yet, despite its significance, the market is showing limited interest and fear of volatility. Markets are under-pricing a heavy reaction to the Fed's outcome. What elements of this event should we be mindful of and what market triggers could spur trade opportunities? We discuss that in today's Strategy Video.
