Today's decision is in line with the expectations of economists and markets. Remember: the market values the possibility of keeping the STP unchanged at more than 90 percent. The FOMC decision is one-headed.
The last interest rate increase occurred after the September 26 2018 meeting.

Today in the afternoon we inform: The Fed will win the dollar today?
The dollar, yesterday afternoon, will defeat the loss that occurred after the publication of the results of the general election to Congress, which indicated the Democratic victory in the House of Representatives. Sessions in Asia confirmed this trend, and the American currency also increased in the first hour of the European session.
EUROSTREFA: According to the European Commission, economic growth in the euro zone this year will reach 2.1 percent, in the future 1.9 percent, and by 2020 it will be 1.7 percent. In the case of Woch, the European Commission saw this year an increase of 1.1 percent, in the case of 1.2 percent, and 1.3 percent. in 2020, which is a revision of the previous forecast line.
Brussels officials see this risk in the form of a rising budget deficit, which this year is only 1.9%. GDP, in the future and 2.9 percent. GDP, and in 2020 will break the barrier of 3.0%. GDP and reached 3.1%. GDP. – That's more than expected by government candles. Woch's debt is expected to remain close to 131 percent. GDP for the following years until 2020.
opinion: The yield on the US government's 10-year bond (3.22%) was slightly withdrawn, with Wall Street continuing to grow. Investors in Europe, however, are bolder – the German DAX is slightly weaker and as a result it is not possible to test the November 2 Summit at 11,681 points.
The market, therefore, quickly "digested" the electoral problem for Congress back to old subjects. The Fed meeting, which must confirm a "positive" view from decision makers about the prospect of further interest rate increases, might be support for the US currency today.
On the other hand, the euro issue is still uncertain about developments in the Italian subject (from the European Commission, indicating that it might initiate procedures against Rome if it does not change the draft budget next year on November 13). According to mediw yesterday, the head of the same ECB, Mario Draghi, pushed Wochnia.
As for the pound, there is increasing pressure for the government to immediately adopt a law on brexit, although the scenario for Irish backstop is not dominance and is still a line of ministerial division in the government of the British prime minister. He himself, according to medial speculation, wants to first ensure that his project will be supported by the main European Union leaders, before he wants to "impose" his acceptance in his own government, which may take place on Saturday.
Therefore, our week may be important in this topic. If he believes in speculation from the last days, Britain will want to adopt the Brexit bill on November 19-21, so they can be presented at the EU-United Kingdom Summit on November 27-28.
It's just for now, what seems to have stopped at the site, which might be a pretext for a correction in the pound's growth in recent days. Open theme remains US-China trade relations.
However, the market is not focused on today's data on China's trade balance, and is awaiting rumors related to a sketch of a new trade agreement, which is being prepared by the Trump administration, which will be presented to Chiczskis this month. There is a risk that it will not be well received by other parties and as a result, trade conflicts can increase (Biay Dom mgby in this situation will bring others to other products imported from China). Currently investors are hoping, but may turn around.
On the daily view of EUR / USD, it can be seen that the attempt to get out of the canal of growth is unsuccessful and we make (as now) a return movement. If today the rally closes in the area of 1.1460 and above, then we can rely on a continuation of earnings. Closing in the area of 1.1420-60 and that will mean an increase in the possibility of returning to page 1.13 in the following week.
