Currencies Consolidate As Market is Confused
Currencies Consolidate As Market is Confused

EUR/USD

The dollar crashed yesterday as the Fed disappointed the market by not being specific on when the next rate hike is likely to be. Though the Fed did hike rates, this was something that the market was expecting to happen anyway and so did not cause much surprise in the markets but the market was expecting a lot more from the Fed in its statement and in terms of guidance on how the economy is doing.

We saw the AUDUSD pair shoot up from below 0.7600 towards 0.7700 and it has broken through that since morning for a brief while and it trades just below that as of this writing.
