Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC)

The FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) meet on a regular basis to discuss monetary policy for the United States. FOMC meeting minutes are published to the world at scheduled economic calendar announcements.

Interest rates may increase, decrease or flatline depending on current foreign and domestic economics. A change in the bank interest rates can have a significant effect on USD currency pairs.
