Pay Attention To The Fed Rate Decision This Week
EUR/USD: Last week, the US dollar held three-week highs against a basket of major currencies after a raft of strong U.S. economic data rekindled expectations for earlier policy tightening by the U.S. Federal Reserve. U.S. retail sales unexpectedly increased in August, rising 0.7% from the previous month despite expectations of a 0.8% fall, while a business sentiment survey by the Philadelphia Fed also showed a big improvement.
Moreover, Inflation in the US, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), edged lower to 5.3% on a yearly basis in August from 5.4% in July, the data published by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed on Tuesday.
Looking ahead, watch out for on the Fed Monetary Policy Meeting this week. The Federal Reserve is expected to leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged. The meeting will give markets new guidance about monetary policy outlook.
We will closely watch for any details of the US central bank's plans to start paring back its $120 billion a month emergency stimulus program.
