FOMC Meeting Minutes
Did the FED Leave the Door Open to Further Rate Cuts in the Last Meeting?

The Federal Reserve increased interest rates in December, which was the fourth rate hike that year, and again in March this year, while the global economy was slowing. Donald Trump kept cursing at them for doing so and it seems like he was right. The US economy has slowed considerably recently and the FED has turned dovish now, cutting rates twice in the last two meetings. But, the focus now is to see if they aim to keep cutting interest rates in the coming months or if they have stopped for now. If there are hints in these minutes from the last meeting, then the USD is likely to turn bearish for some time. Please follow us for live coverage of this event by live market analysts.
