Another big market event looks to be overshadowed as investors turn their focus from the North Korea Summit to the Fed Reserve two-day meeting which kicks off today. Another interest rate hike is expected but confirmation on the matter will not come until tomorrow. Today, markets look to inch higher but not by much as once again market reaction seems to have stalled in anticipation for the next possible market-rocking event. While the G-7 meeting provided plenty of fuel to fire that is the looming possibility of a trade war as tariffs and have continued to be exercised on both sides, the market was lukewarm to react as all eyes were on President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un historic meeting. The meeting, though brief, was historic and a first for the secluded nation. The two leaders signed a joint agreement pledging to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. As the market reacts to this news and prepares for the Fed Reserve meeting investors should continue selling into the rallies and monitor updates for market direction in my Seasonal Charts, Stock Forecast Toolbox predictions, and selective stock direction inTradespoon Bulls and Bears, as these tools are constantly adapting to the ever-changing market conditions.
Tomorrow, the Fed Reserve meeting is set to conclude and we are expecting another interest rate hike from Chairman Jerome Powell. Similarly, Euro Central Bank policymakers are set to meet Thursday and both meetings should affect domestic and global markets. U.S. Consumer Price-Index rose in May by 0.2%, its fast since 2012. Globally, European and Asian markets remain calm after the North Korean summit, however, both gold and the dollar look to trade lower today for the U.S., though not by much.
