ATFX Market Outlook, 2019 September 16
Personal opinions today:
Four major Central Banks, the Fed, Bank of Japan, Central Bank of Switzerland and the Bank of England, announced interest rates on Thursday. The dollar index fell from a high of 99 as markets focused on the Fed. That's because the US CME rate Futures market puts the odds of a 25 basis point cut at 92%, up from a week ago. The dollar is still expected to move lower before the Fed's announcement. If the technical correction continues, the dollar index has a chance to look down at 97.35 support before the Fed's policy meeting or when the results are released. The Bank of Japan and the Bank of England intend to step up QE monetary policy and expect the yen to gain only a limited amount when the dollar falls. But there are downside risks To the British pound and the Euro.
Gold and silver prices are expected to rise as major central Banks could cut interest rates. And Dow futures (US30) and global stocks are generally expected to rise, cause by low-interest rates expect. Besides, an attack on Saudi Arabia's oil supply system The price of oil futures has risen. The US President then said he would supply strategic crude. Oil prices fell after Saudi oil suppliers said they expected regular supplies to resume in a week. If crude oil futures prices keep Rising, they could be bullish on the Dow, but maybe not like this. The Dow probably limited 27345.
