Good morning traders!

At 2:00 pm EST, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), will give their decision on a rate hike. The talk is of raising rates by 75 basis points, and rumors or a 100 basis point increase. After the decision to raise interest rates, Fed Chair Jerome Powell will give a speech at 2:30 pm. Powell is anticipated to insist that the Fed will use all necessary steps to combat inflation. In his most recent speech, Powell indicated that he and his colleagues are absolutely dedicated to bringing inflation under control, but it will cause some pain.
In the news, the Russian president issued a nuclear warning to the West and ordered 300,000 reserve soldiers to deploy. Investors face a number of problems as a result of Putin’s engagement.
