FOMC Meeting Day – Rate Hike Possibilities & How the Markets Might React

FOMC Meeting Day

Time for traders to take note, again. Will the FOMC actions and following press conference meet positive or negative expectations? Last month’s rate hike of 75 basis points, the most hawkish move since 1994, resulted in strong market volatility and price action across all asset classes. Stock index, treasury and currency futures markets are on the agenda again, as we anticipate the impact of today’s upcoming FOMC action.

Watch NinjaTrader’s Jim Cagnina and special guest Jim Iuorio for an in-depth analysis of the Federal Reserve and its role in steering the ship through these rough waters in a recent episode of “See the Futures”
