 Dollar Falls vs. Currencies Before Fed Meeting

The US dollar fell against its major counterparts as manufacturing activity in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York shrank unexpectedly in June and investors cautiously anticipated a Federal Reserve meeting scheduled for this week for further evidence of a possible cut in interest rates.

The US housing market index fell to 64 in June

Building confidence in the United States in newly constructed single-family homes reached 64 in June, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the Wells Fargo Housing Index (HMI) released on Monday. All indexes in the Wells Fargo index were slightly lower than in May. The current selling conditions fell by a single point to 71 points, and the component that measures expectations in the next six months fell by two points to 70 and the flat metric buyer's movement fell by one point to 48 points.

"While demand for single-family homes remains intact, engineers continue to report high development and construction costs, with some additional concerns about trade issues," Greg Ogald, president of the National Association of Home Builders, told a news briefing.

Expectations of interest

On the other hand, the Federal Reserve will start its monetary policy meeting on Tuesday and a decision is due on Wednesday. Market participants widely expect the Federal Reserve to abandon the word "patient" from its statement, signaling its willingness to cut interest rates in the future against the backdrop of trade tensions and slowing growth in the United States. The CME Group's FedWatch tool now shows only a 22.5 percent chance that the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates this week but a 65.7 percent chance of a rate cut next month.
