FOMC in Focus as Interest-rate Expectations Soften

The Fed is expected to raise interest rates by 25bps this week and the focus will be on the accompany economic projections as they pertain to growth, employment and inflation. Most importantly, the updated interest rate dot-plot will be critical – Fed Fund Futures are calling for just one hike next year while the most recent FOMC outlook calls for 2-3. That said, the DXY continues to hold below multi-year slope resistance on building weekly divergence and its make-or-break for the greenback heading into the close of the year. In this webinar we review updated technical setups on DXY, EUR/USD, EUR/JPY, EUR/NZD, NZD/USD, AUD/USD, USD/CAD, Gold, USD/JPY, DAX (GER30), GBP/USD, and Crude Oil (WTI).
