Daily Market Outlook, June 11, 2020 
Market participants initially cheered the fact that the US Federal Reserve voted unanimously to keep the federal funds target rate in a range of 0.00% to 0.25%. It also indicated no changes to the borrowing costs through 2022. The Fed also said it would keep buying bonds, targeting $80 billion a month in Treasuries and $40 billion in mortgage-backed securities. 
The Fed did not comment in its statement on whether it was likely to undertake yield curve control as part of its efforts to keep rates near zero for the next few years. However, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said in a press conference that the US central bank reviewed yield curve control at the meeting, adding that its effectiveness was still an “open question”. Along with the rate decision, the Fed projected the economy will shrink 6.5% in 2020, a year that saw an unprecedented halting of business activity in an effort to combat the coronavirus pandemic. However, 2021 is expected to show a 5% gain followed by 3.5% in 2022.

The Nasdaq Composite outperformed once again, rising 0.67% to post a record closing high of 10,020.35. However sentiment has deteriorated during the Asian session with the S&P losing 1.5% overnight
Yields on US Treasuries fell on Wednesday after the US Federal Reserve repeated its promise of continued extraordinary support for the economy and kept the size of its bond purchase program unchanged. The yield curve between 2-year and 10-year notes flattened to 57bps.

The USD has moved of its lows as equities gave up an initial positive reaction, concerns regarding second wave outbreaks in of COVID-19 in Texas and California are rattling markets this morning.
