According to our research EURUSD, USDJPY and GBPUSD moved 62 pips on FOMC statement data yesterday. There was no change in the federal funds rate and no projections data released yesterday. Less likely adjustments (raising) of the federal funds rate in the near future triggered the losses of the US dollar against major currencies.

In light of global economic and financial developments and muted inflation pressures, the Committee will be patient as it determines what future adjustments to the target range for the federal funds rate may be appropriate to support these outcomes.
