The Federal Reserve statement today will also spell the US dollar policy. Incoming US economic data releases so far have been mixed. Long term prospects of the US economy are rosy. Infosys said it plans to hire 10,000 U.S. workers in the next two years and open four technology centers in the United States, starting with a center this August in Indiana. Curbs on H1B visas will result in hiring of more Americans and less outsourcing. Measures taken by Trump and his team are pro growth but unpopular.
A hawkish FOMC statement will cause furor. The direction of the Japanese yen against the US dollar after the FOMC will affect metals. Energies will move on their own and not get swayed by currency market moves. Physical demand for gold and silver will depend on the short term trend. Any indication of a short term bearish trend reversal in gold and silver can result in good physical demand in India and China. I do not think ETF investors of gold and silver will lag physical buyers in the event of a resumption of the short term bullish trend.
