US Dollar loses ground ahead of Fed’s meeting

 

The AUD/USD appreciated on Wednesday against a softer US dollar. Market speculation that the US Federal Reserve might be considering to control the yield curve after the recent rise on US bonds has been weighing heavily on the US dollar, which depreciated against its main rivals on Wednesday.

Investors remain cautious, with all eyes on the outcome of a two-day Fed monetary policy meeting later today. The bank is widely expected to leave its benchmark rate unchanged at 0% – 0.25%until the economy shows clear signs of recovery from the coronavirus shutdown, but some investors anticipate that the Fed might introduce specific measures to hold down 10-year government bond yields.
