CME Group Interest Rates

About CME Group Interest Rate

Interest rates affect everybody, from consumers on the street, to large financial institutions. The action from the central banks towards its monetary policy, either tightening or easing, will affect the currency value and continue to bring impact to an assets’ value. Global events are another factor that affects the movements in this market.

For example, the Federal Reserve’s meeting results and announcements could signal the government’s dovish/hawkish intent. This provides traders insight into long or short across the yield curve.
