S&P index in the H4 chart reached the level of 2779.2. If it is broken out and the price consolidates above it, the next target will be 2773.4 (Murray [8/8]).
Today, on the eve of the Fed meeting, investors do not expect significant movements in the market. Experts expect the interest rate to be raised by 0.25 points. The comments of the new head of administration, Jerome Powell, regarding the current economic situation and the monetary policy course are also of great importance. Apparently, the regulator will continue to sell treasury bonds, which will soon expire. At the moment, the Fed has bonds worth about USD 2.4 trillion on the balance sheet.
The experts assess the situation in the economy as positive and assume that GDP will grow by 4.6% in Q2 2018, and the unemployment rate will continue to decline, having a positive impact on the welfare level of citizens. Generally, if the Fed will tighten monetary policy too much, this will cause an increase in bond yields and lead to a sell-off in the stock market.
