FOMC 19th June 2019 - 1900 BST - watch IGTV Live

Recommended Posts

Slim but notable chance of a rate cut by the Fed this evening (1900 UK time). You can watch IGTV live over the announcement, both here on Community and within the dealing platform.

Tentative consensus is an unchanged rate range of 225-250 bps, the CME currently gives a 20.8% (FF 19.7%) probability of a rate cut:  https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/interest-rates/countdown-to-fomc.html

In theory a rate cut would boost equities and see Gold stop its uptrend. Now it could be that the potential rate cut is being priced in as we speak and has been priced in. There are times when the opposite of what we think should happen occurs. It is fascinating how the price action of various assets will behave based on the Fed’s decision.

I personally would be surprised if the Fed cut rates. They would potentially keep this option when absolutely necessary and I don’t think the US is at that stage yet.

No surprises in the data, word changes in the mon pol statement reflect concern over low inflation and point to the expected rate cut next month. The presser starts in 5 minutes.

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
