Forex Analysis for Tuesday 13th September 2016
Economic Calendar

A quiet day yesterday with the highlight being FOMC’s Brainard (Voter, Dove) stating that the FOMC must not remove monetary stimulus too soon and that the case for hiking early is ‘less compelling’. (Newswires). Fed watcher Hilsenrath stated that a divided consensus among officials suggests FOMC will be tempted to avoid a September hike and that low inflation suggests a lack of urgency for rate hikes (Newswires). Goldman Sachs lowered its odds for a Fed hike next week to 25% from 40%. (Newswires). Fed’s Kashkari says economic recovery has been slow and frustrating. Atlanta Fed’s Lockhart is still keeping a September move as a possibility, despite the markets indicating December is more likely.

It seems unlikely there will be a hike at next Wednesday’s FOMC meeting. CME Group is forecasting a hike in December.
