Key Quotes

“USD is stronger after the Fed delivered the expected but still slightly hawkish hike and the US 10Y yield again rose above 3%. As expected, EUR/USD fell on impact but partially erased the initial move as Powell stressed that an inflation overshoot will be allowed (USD negative) and as a WSJ story separately reported on the more concrete plans for US tariffs on Chinese goods”.

“Today, while it is a close call, we are looking for the ECB to refrain from putting an end date on QE and thus expect EUR/USD to drop on the announcement and edge a bit higher on some nonetheless hawkish comments as Mario Draghi starts speaking”.

“Bottom line: the Fed and ECB in combination halting the recent EUR/USD rebound”.
