The week ahead – All eyes on FOMC Economic Projections

Key Upcoming Events:

  • US Inflation Rate 15:30 (GMT+3) Wednesday 12th June
  • US Interest Rate Decision 21:00 (GMT+3) Wednesday 12th June
  • JP Interest Rate Decision 06:00 (GMT+3) Friday 14th June

US Inflation Data: Traders will be closely monitoring the CPI data for signs of further softening, which could justify market expectations for a September rate cut.  A weak print might weaken the USD and trigger a risk-on rally, while a strong print could send the dollar higher and impact risk assets negatively.

FOMC Forecasts: With no change in policy expected, the focus will be on the FOMC forecasts and Jerome Powell’s press conference. Traders will look for any signals regarding a potential September rate cut. A downward revision in the Fed funds rate median estimate for this year could be interpreted as a dovish signal.

UK Employment and GDP Data: Pound traders will focus on the UK’s employment report and the monthly GDP rate for April. Consistently strong wage growth and a solid GDP figure could reduce the likelihood of a BoE rate cut in September, potentially boosting the pound.

BOJ Interest Rate Decision: The Bank of Japan’s meeting will be closely watched. Despite mixed data, the BOJ could provide clues towards a future policy shift, with markets pricing in a 10bp hike in July and September. Any hawkish signals from the BOJ could significantly impact the USD/JPY pair.
