On Tuesday, investors are waiting for Fed's Powell Speech in Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, U.S. Senate. The issue can be the monetary policy against EU-US-China trade relations difficulties. As inflation has reached the target level, and the employment market is stable, the regulator can increase rates. However, trade wars make the future of the American economy uncertain. In these circumstances, the Fed may treat the monetary policy with care.
