FOMC definitely surprised the market and caught us off guard! That was as hawkish as it could get in that statement. Hope you guys were on the right side. Sadly our news feed froze up before we could jump in and we missed a good 50 pips of the initial move, but we're still sitting comfortably. :)
Yesterday the EURUSD initially rallied but found yet again enough resistance at the 200-day moving average to reverse and closed in the red near the low of the day with a wide range.
Yesterday the US Federal Reserve (Fed) policy makers left the rates unchanged at 0.25% although announced that the economy is still expanding and they will consider tightening policy at their next meeting in December.
