100 bps July 2022 Fed Rate Hike on the Table

Fed Rate Hike: Despite the looming recession risks, markets are wagering a 100 bps rate hike in July, as Fed will likely fight the inflation monster head-on. The Bank of Canada’s (BOC) unexpected 100 bps lift-off also favors hawkish Fed tightening expectations. The Fed sentiment is leading the way so far this Thursday, weighing negatively on the Gold (XAUUSD) pair.
