Stocks Down Ahead of FOMC

Author:   |    Publish date:


Stocks down ahead of FOMC. US equity indexes closed lower on Tuesday as markets prepared for Fed’s FOMC meeting on Wednesday. Dow (-0.27%), Nasdaq (-0.71%), and S&P (-0.20%) including Russell (-0.28%) were on offer as investors expect Feds to address the hotter than expected inflation for the past two months. Less demand was seen flowing into US bonds, sending the 10Y yield benchmark steady above 1.50% mark.

Crude futures continue its upward trajectory as demand is expected to pick this summer from retail reopening and travelling. The black gold settled above $72.75/bl as New York closed. Gold remains under selling pressure, below $1,870/oz as investors expect yields going higher in light of Fed’s tapering as soon as in Fall this year.

King Dollar became the primary beneficiary across the board as Aussie, Kiwi and Loonie lost their bids. Investors were also seen cautious as demand for the safe haven Swiss and Yen was elevated across all horizons. Risk off seemed affirmative as Euro overbid Sterling in the short to medium term accounts. Wednesday will be a volatile day.


Short term block orders trade. Recent block orders in the amount of $40.7 million was noted in the futures market for Euro/Yen at ¥133.63 and we intend to ride with it. With the stock market in limbo waiting for the Feds, and overvalued commodities, we think it’s time to focus on currency for now.
