Chapter 6 – Fundamental News 101 (Part II)

If you can notice that on June meeting there was a paragraph “…substantial easing… should help to promote moderate growth…” basically meant that FOMC will stop cutting rates, which was a hawkish statement (market didn’t react favorably to this release because USD was under selling pressure, without actions backing up words, market went against USD despite of this hawkish tone). In August statement “Inflation has been high, spurred by earlier increases in price of energy… expects inflation to moderate later this year… inflation outlook remains highly uncertain.” Meaning that high inflation was caused by high crude price, with recent crude price pullback, inflation should ease… therefore FOMC August statement was leaning towards a neutral stance.

Also pay special attention to who voted against and for what. Any change in voting could send a strong signal in addition to the statement.

US – FOMC Ben Bernanke

UK – BOE Melvyn King

EU – ECB Mario Draghi

CA – BOC Mark J. Carney

JP – BOJ Masaaki Shirakawa

NZ – RBNZ Dr. Allan Bollard

CH – SNB Thomas Jordan

AU – RBA Glenn Stevens
