Fed fever and crashing crude in the Ides of March


The rate hike is coming. But what does it mean for markets? We start with the big upcoming event and then continue to the slippery nature of oil prices before previewing other events in the Ides of March.

  1. Fed fever: The NFP cemented the rate hike but the US dollar dropped. What happened? Moving forward, can we expect a hawkish hike or a dovish one? How many hikes will we see in 2017? We tackle these questions and try to provide some answers.
  2. Crude Crash: Oil prices tumbled down quite rapidly. It seems that barrels of oil were sitting on a barrel of explosives and the match finally came to burn them. We analyze the supply/demand balance as well as expectations and prices moving forward.
  3. Preview: Apart from the big Fed meeting, we have three more rate decisions, elections in the Netherlands and more.

Yohay Elam – Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I’ve accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I’ve earned the significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I’ve worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
