Westpac weekly markets video
The FOMC delivered the expected rate hike at last week's eagerly awaited meeting. But markets didn't quite get the hawkish tone expected in the quarterly projections. In our brief weekly video, I discuss the market response to the Fed and also the deepening market concern over protectionist trade policy. I also touch on Australia's jobs data and where the Aussie dollar could trade in the week ahead.
