However, in order for the Dollar to draw a bid Wednesday the Fed would need to signal that over the coming months they intend to step up the pace at which they raise USA interest rates.
The Federal Reserve raised interest rates on Wednesday, a move that was widely expected but still marked a milestone in the US central bank's shift from policies used to battle the 2007-2009 financial crisis and recession.

With employers hiring at a solid pace month after month, unemployment has reached 3.8 percent. In addition, inflation rose to 2.8% during the recent month as the sharp rise in oil prices this year got to work on the consumer price index. Not since 1969 has the jobless rate been lower. It then raised rates once in 2015, once in 2016, three times in 2017 and now twice this year.
