ZFX analyst Jacob Leung said that the dollar clearly strengthened after FOMC meeting, implying three points. First, the investment market is more concerned about Powell’s comment on the economic outlook. Second, investors may have already fully anticipated all the information from Fed, causing a “buy the rumor sell the news” effect. Third, after eliminating the potential bearish of the dollar, risk aversion dominated again. The sell-off pressure in the stock markets may once again trigger the demand of the safe-haven.
Investors are focusing on the FOMC’s meeting. Besides the update of the GDP, unemployment situation and inflation prediction, the Fed may further hint its policy stance and rate expectations. The meeting’s result is scheduled as the afternoon of Wednesday in the US.
