Fed Hikes Rates by 75 bp to Curb Inflation. What's Next for Gold, USD &  Bitcoin?

 

 

FOMC POLICY STATEMENT

The statement offered a downbeat message on economic activity, noting that spending and production indicators are showing modest growth.

On the labor market, the document stressed that the unemployment remains low, acknowledging that job gains remain strong, providing a vote of confidence in the outlook.

The central bank reiterated that inflation is high, reflecting supply and demand imbalances related to the coronavirus health crisis, rising food and energy costs, and broader price pressures. In addition, the bank said it continues to be attentive to inflation risks.

On monetary policy, the FOMC maintained the same forward guidance as previous statements, indicating that ongoing increases in the target range will be appropriate, signaling policymakers are not yet done with aggressive hikes.

    • Hey IG community! I'm considering investing in Ordi Coin and would love some advice. Does anyone have experience with it? Is it a good investment option? Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
    • That's an inspiring story; for a project to that almost got rugged now getting back to attracting investments and possible adoption, that's a huge positive. I did participate in the MON missions tho and we're still waiting for modalities of the airdrop distribution for missioners.
    • It's like having an extra pair of eyes watching the market for you. What I appreciate most about the prop firm ea is its reliability. It seems to make smarter decisions based on the strategies I've programmed. I also like how it handles the emotional aspect of trading—removing the human error part is a huge plus. One tip I can share is to spend time customizing the settings to match your trading style. It took me a while to find the right balance, but once I did, my trading performance improved significantly. Have you tried any specific settings or strategies with your prop firm EA that you found particularly effective?
