EURUSD Trimming Its Gains, Fed Statement in Focus

EUR trimmed its gains today against US dollar after the downbeat Chinese data released on Saturday missed the economist’s expectations and again raised concerns among investors over the slowdown in the world’s largest economy. Official data showed that the Chinese industrial output slowed sharply last month. Separate reports also showed that the retail sales and fixed asset investment also slowed. US dollar continued to be supported ahead of the Fed policy meeting on Wednesday. Investors are expecting the early rate hike if Fed gives a hawkish view on the economy. Firstly the Fed is expected to cut its asset purchase program by another $10 billion in its meeting which will result in the winding up of the program by October and the increase in interest rates by mid of 2015.
