FOMC Meeting Impact on the Currency Futures Markets

By NinjaTrader Team

The Federal Reserve Board's July FOMC meeting results are imminent. With a 25-basis point hike thought to be baked in the cake, the impact of the Fed's monetary policy actions is far from certain.  

Special guest Stephen Jonathan, a long-term market professional, joined a recent episode of “See the Futures” to discuss market outlooks. As Stephen is notably versed in currency markets, the focus is on CME Group currency futures markets in light of FOMC policy and other international forces.
