FOMC Decision Preview - Wednesday, January 29

Hi Bruce - It's not that we don't think the coronavirus is having a negative impact. It's more that we don't believe the negative impact will be to the extent that it demands a reaction from monetary policy. Hope that makes sense. Thank you for reaching out.

Those won't be here, but if you are subscribed to this feed, you will be getting two calls a day, along with special reports (usually one per week around a major event) and some technical overviews of major FX markets (these are updated based on the need to do so..ie if markets are just consolidating, no change to the commentary, so no need for new technical updates). Thanks for taking the research in. Glad you're making use of it.

Powell Offers His Reassurances To Investors
1 year ago

We believe we're in a very dangerous place right now, where the Fed needs to be more worried about financial stability risk associated with a strategy that continues to direct investors into a stock market that has flown way to high on borrowed wings. A capitulation in stocks has been overdue and should be a healthy, yet painful step, in finally moving on from a crisis that started over a decade ago.

As far as the US administration goes, it's interesting. The US administration has been committed to a trade policy that should pressure the US Dollar lower, not higher. This strategy is therefore aligned with a loose form of monetary policy, which means the more the administration pushes to disrupt on the trade front, in an effort to rebalance the US economy, the more it pressures the Fed to do exactly what it wants - which is to continue to see a Fed that errs on the side of rate cuts and accommodation (ie equals soft Dollar).
