Summary:  FOMC Day

Good Morning to FOMC day

The slightly lower CPI yesterday caused the expectation for the FOMC decision tonight has shifted from approximately 70% in favor of no action to 90%.

Equities traded friendly on that news but unspectacularly so. The three large US Indexes all add less than 1%, and the GER40 holds near 16200. Volumes were rather high at 10% above average . AMD presented it`s AI strategy and the share dropped while Nvidia could profit by the same percentage amount and Nvidia closed above 1 trillion in Market cap.

The US Index is weak ahead of the rate decision at 103.32, EURUSD is 1,0780, GBPUSD 1,2610 and USDJPY crossed to above 140 on a weak Yen.

As US Yields remained firm after the CPI – It seems that FX / Rates and Equity traders follow different assumptions  - Gold and Silver dropped  before recovering again. Gold rose to 1970 just after the CPI then fell to 1940 to now trade 1947. The Turkish Lira remains near record weakness at above 23.65.

Unless there is a massive surprise in the rate decision, all focus tonight will be on the speech of Jerome Powell. Focus will be on the question on a dovish, neutral or dovish pause – should there be a hike, that question would be answered and focus would shift to the rationale.

The PPI should only move markets significantly if there were a real outlier.

Consider your position sizes and maybe use options for speculative exposures as markets are likely to move quickly later.
