The dollar is steadying early Thursday after falling sharply as the Federal Reserve all but swore off raising interest rates again this year “ a swing that could signal the end of the whole policy tightening cycle.
œThe Fed™s concerns over the future inflation path are clearly stronger than anticipated and it seems that the hiking cycle really is now over, said Lee Ferridge, head of multi-asset strategy, the Americas at State Street (NYSE:STT) Global Markets.
The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, lost over half a percent in reaction to the news, but it recovered during Asian trading hours and at 04:00 AM ET (0800 GMT), it stood at 95.412, down around 0.5% from its level before the announcements.
