Tuesday 10th December
Good morning Forex Kings,
We have a huge week a head as markets look towards the FED Interest Rate decision as well as their monetary policy statement.
Data from the US has been extremely strong with the US Non Farm Payroll printing some extremely large figures on Friday. This will give the FED reason to believe they have taken the correct action in holding interest rates. We are expecting the FED to remain balanced but optimistic that the US economy is in a strong place.
However, Trump is not going to like this and we may see him begin to ‘Jawbone’ the FED and the US as he is adamant on needing a weaker USD. This weekend is going to be decision time for Trump as he will decide if the next round of tariffs will be placed on Sunday the 15th December. He is most likely to announce his decision after the market close early hours Saturday morning (AEDT). Meaning next Monday could see some huge gaps!
What does this mean for the market?
With the risk set to increase going into the end of the week GOLD as a safe haven asset could see some upside. As well as December generally being a strong month for gold prices.
