Further stabilization on Korean peninsula ahead

  • The Kim-Trump meeting was completed yesterday with both parties signing a joint document.
  • According to media, the joint document included “security guarantees” for N.Korea from the US president and the US may stop joint military exercises with S. Korea.
  • On the other hand, N. Korea pledged unwavering commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula among other points.
  • Sanctions against N.Korea are to remain in place and the denuclearization process is to start “very,very quickly “ as per Pres. Trump.
  • Should there be further positive headlines about the issue we could see the USD strengthening while safe havens could weaken.

All eyes on the FOMC

  • The FOMC is going to announce it’s interest rate decision today at 18:00 (GMT) and is widely expected to hike rates by 25 basis points reaching +2.00% and Fed’s Funds Futures imply a probability for the FOMC to hike rates by 87%.
  • Hence, market focus could shift to the accompanying statement and the dot plot for further clues about future rate hikes.
  • We see the case for the bank to have a neutral to hawkish accompanying statement as the US economy had favorable financial releases recently.
  • Also, should the Fed’s forecasts alter, based on the recent acceleration of the inflation rate and the favorable employment report, we could see the dot plot implying a four rate hike path in 2018.
  • Overall, the greenback could strengthen from the interest rate decision and the following press conference.
