September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading lower at the mid-session and shortly before the release of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate decision and monetary policy statement at 18:00 GMT. The market continues to be supported by the hope the U.S. and China will return to the negotiation table, but we may not know for sure for 10 days. In the meantime, the focus for investors will be on the timing and frequency of the expected Fed rate cuts.

At 16:29 GMT, September E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading 7658.25, down 15.00 or -0.20%.

Bullish traders are hoping the Fed signals three rate cuts this year with the first coming in July. Stocks could weaken if the Fed hints at skipping a July cut and scheduling its first cut in more than 10 years for September.

Basically, the announcement of three rate cuts starting in July will be dovish, but bullish for stocks. The announcement of two or three rate cuts with the first likely in September will be hawkish and short-term bearish for stocks.
