Federal Reserve Meeting in Focus

After two emergency meetings in March, the regular Federal Reserve meeting will take place today. Investors believe that FED will provide assurances like leaving the interest rates unchanged for months or even years as a measure to contain the coronavirus damage on the economy. Additionally, FED should analyze the strategy on their bond-buying plan though it’s doubtful to announce a new emergency plan. Heading to the earnings news, Airlines and Cars companies were hammered by COVID-19. Daimler announced a 78% drop in the 1st quarter while Volkswagen estimates a big fall in earnings this year. Airbus, Chief Executive Guillaume Faury said that this is the “gravest crisis the aerospace industry has ever known” as the planemaker reported 49% drop for the 1st quarter.
