Forex Market Outlook: 29 September 2022

Updated September 29, 2022

The dollar index (DXY) retraced briefly on Wednesday, dropping nearly 1.86% to 112.57. Market sentiments turned slightly positive as investors expect the Fed to slow down the pace of interest rates hike sooner than expected. All eyes are on the US Gross Domestic Product Data announcement on Thursday, with consensus showing a negative growth rate of –0.6%. A lower-than-expected GDP growth rate may further weaken the dollar.

Bank of England looks to defend the British Pound (GBP) in a new set of bond buying program early Wednesday. The BOE will buy bonds with a maturity of over 20 years and up to 5 billion pounds per auction initially. This came after the yields on UK government bonds rose sharply as investors shunned the fixed income markets following the announcement of the “mini-budget” which includes large unfunded tax cuts. This may lead to a further weakening of the pound in the long run, further worsening the effects of inflation in the UK.
