In line with expectations, the Federal Reserve raised the target range for the fed funds rate by 25 bp to 1.25% - 1.50%. The post-meeting statement highlighted a strengthened economic outlook and the Committee’s increased confidence to hit the inflation target before the end of this year.


The update Summary of Economic Projections showed stronger growth forecast for 2018 and 2019 (reflecting the impact of the fiscal stimulus), a lower path for the jobless rate, and the anticipation that core inflation will exceed 2% next year.

Recommended size: 2.11 mini lots per $10,000 in your account
Short analysis: The pair climbs back above the daily cloud top as well as the 10, 21 & 55-Day SMAs. RSIs are biased up again and give us bullish momentum. We opened EUR/USD long at 1.2340 for 1.2550.

Stop-loss: 107.00

Trading strategy: Short
Open: 1.2900
Target: 1.2600
Stop-loss: 1.3050

Open: 0.7760
Target: 0.7950
Stop-loss: 0.7690
