 Published: September 23rd, 2021

In this week’s FOMC, the Federal Reserve provided another hawkish outlook for the US economy where analysts expect it as a bullish price driver for the US Dollar. The Federal Funds rate remained unchanged at 0-0.25% with a split of the monthly QE assets purchases of $120 bn to $80 bn on Treasury Securities and another $40 bn on agency MBS. Moreover, the US Dollar and the US short rates have lifted from the Fed’s expectation of a rate hike as soon as next year. The hawkish expectation became supportive for the US Dollar signaling that the moderation on the pace of the asset purchase program may become warranted. The reference indicated a taper announcement in the November FOMC meeting, and until now, there has been no negative shock in the interim period.

On the other hand, the global factor and the unwinding pricing for a 50bp RBNZ rate hike are potential Kiwi to see a slippage against the US Dollar.
