23:55 EDTAsian equities are mixed after the dovish Fed slant
Asian equities are mixed after the dovish Fed slant was perpetuated by Yellen and boosted Wall Street, despite the surrender of the "patient" policy reference. Japan's Nikkei sank 0.65% after the Fed shift saw the yen rally sharply to a high of 119.66 at one stage before retreating back over 120 again. Though the Chinese yuan rallied 0.4% to a 2-month high through 6.20 against the dollar (compared to 6.2590 levels on Tuesday), the Shanghai Comp managed to eke out a 0.2% again on continued stimulus hopes. Biggest gainer among the Asian-Pacific majors was the Australian ASX, which gained 1.7% on global growth optimism as the Fed is apparently no rush to hike while the rest of the world is going the opposite direction.
17:00 EDTTreasury Closing Summary:
Treasury Closing Summary: asset markets rocketed higher after the FOMC more than offset the removal of "patient" via a statement that was more dovish than anticipated. The 10-year yield dove over 14 bps to test 1.09%, while the Dow turned a 100 point decline into a 227 point increase to regain the 18,000 level. Fed funds futures jumped as well as the risk of a June rate hike was lowered substantially.
16:25 EDTFX Action: EUR-USD shot up to 1.1049
FX Action: EUR-USD shot up to 1.1049 highs, with thinning liquidity likely exacerbating the price action. From pre-Fed levels, the pairing rallied nearly 4 big figures. USD-JPY plummeted to 119.30 lows, a nearly one month low. The dollar index fell from 99.80 highs to 96.63.
16:10 EDTFed Swaps Patience for Pessimism:
Fed Swaps Patience for Pessimism: The FOMC dropped "patient" like a hot potato, but said the change in forward guidance did not alter the timing of the first tightening and a hike in April remained unlikely. More generally, sizable downgrades in the growth and inflation forecasts, combined with an array of downward revisions for the "dot plot" rate forecasts, left a surprisingly dovish result for the markets overall. According to the Fed, "economic growth has moderated somewhat" thanks in part to slowing export growth.

15:20 EDTFed Chair Yellen on the stronger dollar
Fed Chair Yellen on the stronger dollar: she doesn't have a firm quantitative estimate on the impact. But it should serve as a "notable drag on economic growth" this year. Nevertheless, the Committee still sees sufficient strength in the economy this year, and above trend growth going forward. With respect to how U.S. policy impacts globally, she said the Fed realizes that our own policies affect other economies and that analysts do spend time discussing global developments. She concluded by stating that it's important to keep our own house in order, and that a strong U.S. economy helps other economies as well.

15:00 EDTFX Action: USD-CAD touched 1.2605 lows
FX Action: USD-CAD touched 1.2605 lows, falling sharply from 1.2740 ahead of the Fed. The CAD got a benefit from not just the broadly lower greenback, but also from the sharp commodity rally which kicked in. Gold prices rallied over $20/ounce to over $1,170, as crude prices shot up nearly $3/bbl toward $45, from session lows just over $42.00.
