The Federal Reserve's interest rate decision is the likely event for Wednesday (Fed). The Federal Reserve is widely expected to undertake a third consecutive rate hike of 75 basis points (bps). The retail sector is doing well, and the labor market is tighter than anyone expected, so the Federal Reserve still has a lot of room to raise interest rates. Therefore, bets on a 1% rate hike are rising and could pay well.
Inflation, interest rate peak, and economic growth projections will also be tracked. All possible actions by the Fed have been priced out of the market. In the wake of the Fed's meeting, investors will get ready to take bolder steps.
The chance of a policy adjustment from the Bank of Japan has increased as the nation's Consumer Price Index (CPI) has improved (BOJ).
