FX:GER30   DAX Index
555 0 5
Jannet Yellen has finally ended its zero –interest rate policy yesterday by hiking 25bpbs.The US Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) said that any future rate hikes will be “gradual” after Wednesday’s initial move.

The forecast for the Fed funds rate from the Individual FOMC participants is at 1.375% at end of 2016 that implies four 0.25% hikes next year.

The Fed rate hike is expected to have positive impact on Euro             zone economy. The Euro             zone recovery remains on track as manufacturing activity (PMI) in the single currency bloc rising to a 20-month high in December and also improving in both Germany and France.

Manufacturing activity rose at its fastest pace for more than a year and-a-half due to weaker Euro             is benefiting regions exporters.

So Fed rate hike is expected to be positive for Euro             stocks as it likely to widen the spreads between short term US and Euro             bonds. The Currency pair ( EUR/USD             ) is also expected to decline further on policy divergence between US Fed and ECB.

US 2 year bond yield has risen above 1% for the first time in more than five years after Fed hikes short term interest rates. So short term bonds yield spread between Euro             and US is expected to increase further in coming months .
