In this webinar I discuss the major central banks' monetary policies and their implications for FX markets over the next week.
The Federal Reserve's decision to announce the beginning of its balance sheet normalization process, or unwind of their QE asset purchases, took market partcipants by surprise last week, as did the FOMC's reaffirmation of their intention to raise rates by another 25-bps by December.
Concurrently, with Fed policy intentions looking more hawkish than what the market was previously pricing in, the US Dollar has been lifted by rising yields and rising rate expectations - legitimate sources of support in the near-term, particularly against the low yielding, safe haven currencies.
Other topics covered include:
- What are the implications for the DXY Index if the EUR/USD head & shoulders pattern is validated?
- Why are Euro losses likely to be capped in the near-term, even if the ECB decides to wait to taper its QE program?
