Information is not investment advice
What will happen?
The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will update the Federal Funds Rate and make a statement about future monetary policy on July 27 at 21:00 MT. This is how the US manages its economy.
Possible USD moves
The Fed members have hinted that due to the massive inflation, they will raise the rate by 75 basis points again. However, there’re still plenty of rumors that the Fed’s steps could be more hawkish with a 100-point rate increase.
The previous FOMC meeting’s result didn’t bring positive news, as the probability of a recession increased. Traders weren’t that happy with the result. For example, the USDCAD lost 1210 points in the first hour. If you caught the moment and traded one lot, your potential profit could have been $1210.
