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.

    • With the breakout of GBPUSD (would like to see a daily close above support there and ideally a breakout through the daily channel line) and EURUSD making up its mind about whether to breakout or not I look at the third pair in the Triad for clues.  My thesis is that when both of these markets rally it will be on USD weakness rather than intrinsic strength in either one BUT as GBP has been more depressed of later and with so much negativity around about GBP vs EUR the spring back relief rally will be stronger on GBP.  If right we should see EURGBP turn and drop fast and hard and continue to do so for at least as long as the primary pairs rally lasts. And that is what we have seen so far with what looks like an exhaustion overshoot of my daily chart channel line and drop back inside.  A drop away from this area is confirmatory of an exhaustion spike, and that is what we got.  There followed a small 1-2 retrace, relief rally, which retested the channel line but failed to break back though, and another small 1-2 before a short term channel (1H chart) break and failed retest and then we were off to the races. Recently there has been a consolidation in what could be a small pennant of another 1-2, probably the latter and then a fast break down from this formation to where we are now, testing the lower daily chart channel.  If I am right about a period of USD weakness then I would expect EUR to join the party soon and so we may see a relief rally off the daily channel lower line before a confirmed break. Worth watching the Triad to see how things progress over the coming days and during the Jackson hole panto.
