Stock Asia is trading without a single dynamic
As a result of the next meeting of the leadership of the American Central Bank, in addition to the traditional statement on the rate and volume of asset redemption, economic forecasts will be published, as well as expectations regarding further dynamics of interest rates.
Experts believe that the Fed will not give signals about plans to gradually reduce the volume of redemption of bonds earlier than in August-September this year.
At the same time, a dot plot - that is, a chart that reflects the individual expectations of the Fed's Board of Governors and the heads of the Federal Reserve Banks regarding interest rates - could show that all 18 central bank leaders expect at least one rate hike in 2023.
According to Marcella Chow, global markets strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management, at some point ignoring inflation concerns will no longer convince investors, so the focus will be on what the Fed says about its expectations for economic growth, inflation and interest rates.
