      The Fed‘s rate cut has been one of the headline topics recently, there’s another indicator much relevant to the interest rate cut - the ISM non-manufacturing index for October, announced yesterday. This index from US Institute of Supply Management (ISM) tracks non-manufacturing business activities from the previous month, a reading higher than market expectations indicates a bullish trend of the US dollars, while a lower-than-expectation reading means the US dollar is on a bearish trend.

      As the ISM non-manufacturing index reached 54.7, up from September‘s 52.6 and higher than the expected 53.5, the dollar has been beefed up to a highest level since mid-October, thus reducing the chance of further Federal Reserve rate cut. According to the probability data implied by the interest rate market, the expectation for Fed’s target interest rate after December has changed significantly. More specifically, the rate-cut expectation is down from 61.9% on October 31st to 38.1%.
