How Will Other Central Banks, Currencies React to the Fed's Hold?

How Will Other Central Banks, Currencies React to the Fed's Hold?

Talking Points:

• The Fed's decision to delay normalizing its monetary policy will impact more than just the US economy/markets

• A slower take off by the Fed will indirectly bolster the Pound's appeal for its competitive time frame

• Those central banks pursuing easing may be heartened on 'risk' but a USD curb may pinch favorable FX trends

The US maintains the world's largest economy and financial system. That translates into global rammifications for what are otherwise local events. Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen aknowledged in response to audience questions during a press conference that the FOMC's policy impacts the global markets and that international developments are taken into consideration when the group deliberates its bearings. That being the case, the decision to hold the benchmark range unchanged at the central bank's meeting this past session will no doubt change the landscape for other central banks and currencies. From the Pound's indirect rise in rank for being a potential first mover on hikes to the ECB's consideration of a stalled Dollar advance for the favorable EURUSD exchange rate shift, we discuss how other key majors may be impacted by the Fed's hold in today's Strategy Video.
