The FOMC statement for the October 2019 meeting

I believe I know why USD tanked yesterday after FOMC statement

My thanks go to alotmorealots for writing such a nice post. It really made me think and search why EUUSD reacted as it did, though I did not trade it this time.
If you look at the 30 Day Federal Funds Futures chart, you will a significant upward movement yesterday. It coincides with the FOMC statement release time if you switch to intraday. When the fed funds futures goes up, it means that the lower interest rates are expected. Thus, fed funds futures market has clearly interpreted the statement as such that implies lower future interest rates. It was likely interpreted that way by big USD speculators as well (otherwise, it would create a huge arbitrage opportunity between FF futures and USD spot markets). Of course, it brought weakness to the US dollar across all currency pairs.
The exact reasons for such interpretation are unclear to me, but I guess some big institutional market participants had hoped that Yellen would produce a more hawkish statement and/or projections (though they were not quite dovish either - see difference with February statement). There also was one FOMC member who voted against the rate increase.

ITT: I teach you how simple it is to trade Fundemental Analysis

I did one for technical analysis, so here's one for fundemental analysis (here is the previous thread: http://www.reddit.com/Forex/comments/2nc2dt/itt_i_teach_you_how_simple_it_is_to_make_money_in/ )
Steps:
  1. Realize that Fundemental Analysis is extremely important to the success of a trader who trades the Daily and above timeframes. The goal is to make sure that the trend from TA lines up with the view from FA. (ie. Bullish FA + Bullish TA= success).
  2. Go to http://www.forexfactory.com/calendar.php to view all news events. Change the settings to show only [RED] expected impact. We mainly care about Inflation, Central Banks, and Speeches. Red just means high volatility upon release.
  3. The BIGGEST problem most people have with trading FA is that they think EVERY red news is important. That is FALSE. We mainly care about the Central Banks and what they do with any Stimulus, Interest Rates, and Inflation. These are the 3 holy grails for trading FA. The Central Bank are the ones who calls the shots.
  4. Go to www.investopedia.com and learn what Central banks montary statements, Quantiative Easing, Interest Rates, and Inflation really is. You want to know how the market reacts to a Quantiative easing, highelower intrest rates or inflation, ect ect ect.
  5. Every month or so, a country will release a statement that's given by the central bank. You will need to read these statements, and trust me it's not hard. It's only once a month for each currency for gods sakes.

    Currency|BankName

    EUR: ECB

    USD: FOMC

    AUD: RBA

    NZD: RBNZ

    CAD: BOC

    JPY: BOJ

    GBP: BOE

  6. Click on this image: http://prntscr.com/5vixoy .

    The Red box is what you click on to bring down more information.

    The Pink box is a basic outline of what that news event is.

    The blue box is the important one. This is where 3rd party news articles about that news event is posted. (i prefer bloomberg and reuters).

    Click on any of them to read it. Notice that they fill up with 3rd party articles AFTER the news release (duh).
  7. The point isn't to trade before the central bank news release, but AFTERWARDS. You want to know what the central bank is thinking. An example: Doing a Quantitative easing will cause the value of a currency to fall, since USD did 3 quantitative easing in the past, this happened: http://prntscr.com/5tuebl . Notice how when the bank said they WILL do it soon, it caused a rally. We love these rallys. We make $$$ off this shit.
  8. So you basically want to read what they are saying and figure out which direction they are looking towards. Not every country is WANTING to increase the value of their currency. Some care more about inflation, interest rates, unemployment, ect. Reading the central bank statements will TELL YOU. Remember to always keep in mind that market sentiment WILL change based on economic data releases. Meaning if we know USD will be bullish, it's only once certainly bullish IF criteria is met. That criteria may be any of the economic indicators, and if they're NOT met, expect pullbacks. You can either trade these pullbacks (bit risky) or you can use them as opportunities to make trades toward the overall goal of the central bank (Buy USD in this case). Also, don't think that when a central bank says 'we want to increase interest rates in February.' means that they WILL do it in February. If the indicators aren't good, they won't increase it.
  9. Example: BOJ wants to issue a quantitative easing stimulus on 10-31-2014. So, Trebel decides to not use his indicators and decides to short JPY because he learned that doing a Quantiative easing stimulus causes the value of that currency to fall dramatically (not to mention Tecnical analysis says that the trend for JPY is bearish)! Trebel is now happy and can go chase some big booties with his money.
  10. Example 2: SilkyBrah decides to buy JPY because they had good unemployment numbers , but later he finds out he got margin called. WHY?! Because JPY doesn't care about their unemployment numbers like USA does, they care about something else. SilkyBrah will next time read the central bank statement to know what event is important for that country.
Some of you probably don't understand WHICH news event is from the central bank, so here's a picture: http://prntscr.com/5vj12g
EDIT: I tried to dumb this down as much as possible.
Thanks for the Reddit gild/gold whoever it was. No idea what I do with them though lol
EDIT2: Okay. Bloomberg's new website layout is beyond horrible. I now will use Reuters and other competitors instead.

The big fat r/Forex FOMC Minutes and Dollar thread

Let's talk FOMC and the USD.
FOMC Minutes
The short version is that after parsing through the language of the FOMC minutes, most analysts see a somewhat mixed to positive message:
Also
Why are the minutes important?
The key to understanding why FOMC is important this time comes from this statement:
Interest rates up means dollar up, it's that easy. 10 year rate hit 2.93% today, wow!
USD
Most targets, except for USDJPY due to it's correlation to SPX/SPY and DJI, are bullish. I saw several small gap downs in futures which represent a strong opening for the USD. USDCAD is looking to tear. AUDUSD is potentially breaking a huge support line at .7800.
You aren't getting 100% guidance because that doesn't exist in FX. It's anebvulous message. There is likely other factors too:
All in all is seems to be bullish for USD. Read this: https://www.fxstreet.com/news/forex-today-turn-around-fomc-minutes-bargain-hunters-buy-back-the-dollar-201802212341
So, what say you?

Steady gain in the gold market on last Friday upon the weakness of U.S dollar

There has been a massive fluctuation in the price of the gold market in the last Friday.as the investors were in doubt about the recent strength of the US dollar the price of gold sharply move in both the direction in the forex market during the trading session. However, at the end, the bulls were the winners and took the control of the market before the market closed. The gold price was settled at 1179.20 gaining a 9.8 percent in that day. In the month of February, the price of gold delivery was at one point at $ 1177.70 but this gain was erased as the price dropped to 1168.40.There has been also a sharp drop in the U.S unemployment rate for near about 4, 6% which is the highest drop within the last decade. However, the non-firm payroll data was positive and the payroll rose by 178k in the market. However, the leading economist was expecting 180k which means 90 millions of U.S workers are yet to find their job. The recent strength of the U.S dollar was boosted by the U.S presidential election as Mr. Trump came up with very optimistic solutions for their economy. However, over the course of time, his statement lost the power in the global economy and the strength of the dollar is again slipping down. The FED is most likely to hike their interest rate in the month of December since the ongoing performance of the U.S economy is pretty stable and such an increase in the interest rate will significantly impact the gold price since it is priced in dollars. According to FED rate hike, monitor tool there 91.3% chance that FED will hike their interest rate in the upcoming FOMC meeting minutes but leading economist are doubted since the FED might need another rate hike for the longevity of their dollar strength in the global economy.
In last Friday the price of gold had a strong rally in the market as the U.S dollar lose its strength in the market on the release of the weak Non-farm payroll data. To be precise if the dollar starts to retreat at this moment than this might cause a shift in the commodities price including the precious metal gold. On the contrary, the average hourly income of the U.S citizen has grown significantly in the last few months and investors are considering this fact as a strong sign for the new bulls in the market. The consumer sentiment of the U.S economy is also very positive at the current moment since they have been eased with lots of promising statement by the newly elected president Donald Trump. The leading economic researchers are still in doubt about the real strength of the dollar since most of the strength I s based on an optimistic statement by the leading leaders of the U.S economy.
The investors are in fear since they have no clue about the recent performance of the U.S dollar. In the eyes of trained professional, the upcoming FOMC meeting minute is going to play a major role in the gold and commodities market. They are cautiously waiting for the FED decision to extract a clear information about the recent economic performance and a future plan of the U.S government. If the FED come up with the hawkish statement in the month of December then it will be a very hard time for the precious metals investors since deeper decline will rule the market. In the next week, the US Prelim UoM Consumer Sentiment data will be released and this data will also help the traders to understand the current market sentiment. The US dollar Index is currently trading below the critical daily support line at 100.75.This means clearly creates a doubt into the mind of investors about the sustained strength of the U.S dollar. If the S dollar index fails to find enough bullish momentum at the current level then we will see a sharp decline in the U.S index towards its next critical support level at 100.55.This level is going to play a significant role in the global economy since with a closing of the price near that level will indicate a closing near its weekly lows. On the contrary, the price of gold is trading well above the resistance level. Currently, the resistance level is $1175.95 and this level has turned into a strong support level. If the price of gold extends above $1180.56 level then we will see a nice bullish run in the price of gold for a prolonged period of time.
The intraday support for the gold is currently at $1167.22 and 1162.67.This clearly demonstrates that the gold as plenty of support below and there is strong chance that the breakout will be in the upward direction. However, the recent pending interest rate decision has become one of the major issues for the gold investors since interest rate change can significantly change the price of gold in the financial market. Considering all the facts trading the gold at the current price level is extremely risky. Experts have no clue about the recent strength of the US dollar and where the strength will go in the next FOMC meeting minutes.TO be precise the FED are now in the driving seats and all the investors are cautiously waiting on the sideline for the better trading opportunity. In the opinion of expert investors, it’s better to enter the market after the dust settles down since they will have a clear overview of the fundamental factors of the market.
