      USD Overview (17 June 2021)

      Yesterday, USD strengthened against all the major currencies after the hawkish tone sent out by the Federal Reserve.

      The U.S. housing data released yesterday indicated a decline in the number of building approvals issued and the number of residential buildings that began construction in May.

      During the monetary policy meeting earlier today, the Federal Reserve kept its monetary policy unchanged. In the interest rate statement, the central bank continues to acknowledge that recent inflation is due to transitory factors. The Fed also acknowledged that the progress on vaccinations has slowed down the spread of the pandemic in the U.S. and that the progress will “likely continue to reduce the effects of the public health crisis on the economy”.

      In the released projection materials, the committee members have revised their projections on GDP and inflation upwards in the near future while unemployment rate remains pretty much the same except for a slight downward revision in 2022. The dot plot indicated that 7 members expect interest rate to increase in 2022 as compared to 4 members back in March while 13 members expect a rate hike in 2023 as compared to 7 members back in March.

      During the press conference, Fed Chair Powell highlighted that there has been initial discussions on when the central bank should be cutting back on its quantitative easing.
