Thousand USDUSD lost positions after Fed meeting and the report about it. The document became clear that central bankers reluctant to increase interest rates, but the intended closure of the era of printing money compared to expectations. The eyes of market participants will be directed to today’s meeting of the Bank of England, which will decide on interest rates. The meeting minutes of the Fed confirmed initial expectations that monthly bond purchases will be terminated at the end of October. This will be an end of an unconventional method of dealing with crisis situations, namely printing massive amounts of money to stimulate consumption and speed in the country.

One of the main events today will be connected with the meeting of the central bank of the United Kingdom. The decision on the interest level in the country will be published at 14:00 CET. Estimates are that the institution will maintain its current policy and the base rate will remain unchanged at 0.5%.
