ICM Capital


The USD rose against all currencies after the Federal Reserve decided to maintain the range of federal funds rate at 0-0.25%. The statement released revealed that the Federal Reserve officials anticipatean interest rate hike in December,after they see some further improvement in the labor market and are reasonably confident that inflation will move back to its 2% objective over the medium term. The Fed said that the US economy has been expanding at moderate pace and acknowledged that the “pace of job gains slowed”. While the Fed kept rates steady after its two-day meeting this week, investors appeared to welcome a vote of confidence in the economy from the central bank.
