    2. support@capitalaim.com FOCUS OF THE WEEK Narrowing yield differentials between US bonds and those of other major economies are prolonging USD's weakness. The Fed increased interest rates twice this year, in March and in June, and the dot plot accompanying the June meeting statement continued to project one more rate hike for the rest of the year, followed by three rate hikes in 2018. However, we acknowledge that some market participants have started to doubt whether there will be one more hike this year. Indeed, BNP Paribas has just revised its forecast, projecting no more rate hike for the rest of the year while Goldman Sachs is factoring in 60% chance of one more rate hike through 2017. These indicate that the market had turned more dovish over the Fed monetary policy outlook, although the central bank has tried to go further by discussing about balance reduction. Diminished optimism of US' growth is a key reason for the more dovish expectations. The Trump administration has failed to announce any concrete plan to implement the President's pro-growth promise (including tax reform and infrastructural spending). Ironically, the lawmakers have failed for several times to pass the new healthcare reform bill, although both chambers of the Congress, namely the House of Representatives and the Senate, are controlled by Republicans. This evidenced the internal conflicts of the Republican members and the lack of leadership of the President. Meanwhile, the government is entangled with the scandal of Trump family's association with Russia and the latter's possible intervention of 216 US Presidential Election. Testimonies and investigations have occupied most of the Congress' time, at the expense of debates of the pro-growth policies. The latest news of the political drama is the resignation of the press secretary Sean Spicer, in protest over the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as the new White House communications director. The focus of the week is the FOMC meeting due Wednesday. The dilemma facing the Fed is the continuation of moderate growth and labor market improvement on one hand, and the subdued inflation on the other hand. We are interested to see how the Fed would described the inflation weakness of late, especially of it would continue to described the softness as "transitory". Special attention is also paid on any more detail on the timing of an announcement on the beginning of balance sheet normalization. Besides the FOMC meeting, Fed Governor nominee Randall Quarles is having his confirmation hearing on Thursday and Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari is due to speak on Friday.
