Eyes on FOMC
Meanwhile, eyes will now turn to the Federal Reserve interest rate decision. Rates are expected to remain steady at 1.50-1.75% and the US dollar can likely continue to perform should the focus be on an improved economic backdrop on home soil. "We don't anticipate any dissents next week for the first time since May. Statement and dot-plot shifts are well anticipated," analysts at TD Securities argued.
"For the markets and the US dollar the key to this FOMC lies in the Projection Materials. Will the governors mark down their fed funds estimate for next year to take account of the current 1.75% rate or will they see a brighter future and raise their GDP and rate projections for 2020. This rather straightforward economic analysis will either propel or retard the dollar for the next several weeks - "
