ATFX Market Update - 2019.06.21


Personal opinions today:

The federal reserve left interest rates unchanged after its meeting to assess market and economic conditions. But in a news release, some of the words in the minutes of the fed's rate-setting meeting were changed, assuming the central bank may cut rates this year. Market estimates suggest the fed could start cutting rates by an estimated totals 0.5%, next month and September. The dollar fell as interest rate differentials narrowed against other major currencies, raising fears of a contraction in the U.S. economy. Interest rate cut expectations, continue to benefit the stock market, crude oil prices and gold prices.

The German manufacturing PMI for June and the Eurozone manufacturing PMI for June were expected to fall today, which was bearish for the Euro and the Swiss franc. Next, US Markit manufacturing and services PMI readings for June and the total number of existing home sales in the United States for May are expected to rise, which is bullish for the dollar and indirectly bearish for European currencies. If u. s. economic data grows, the dollar will rise. Crude oil prices are expected to rise, while gold prices and commodity currencies are falling.
