5 minute ES Fed Day charts for 2004:
thanks guy, great info, appreciate it
I agree. Interesting site as well.
I've updated the chart from the last Fed Day and so a fairly complete fed day chart history going back 1998 for the E-mini S&P500 - the ES.
The 2004 charts have the FOMC decision above them.

You are doing great things with this website. Great job. I really appreciate your posts.
I have to agree with this. Lots of info. there for newbs and experienced traders. Nice work.
The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) consensus forecast is for a rise in the interest rates from 2.25% to 2.5%. Meeting starts today and rate change (if any) will be announced tomorrow at 14:15 EST.
look back at 1998-2002 and you will see lots of 20 point swings in the s&p's.
Too bad market doesn't trade like that anymore.
Did you trade any of those days? If so, how did you do?
The FOMC meeting is likely to bring in a widely anticipated 25-basis-point increase in the federal funds rate target. Market players will be more interested in the post-meeting statement. Will the word "measured" be deleted from the statement? That is the current expectation. However, it is probable that the change would still wreak havoc in the financial markets. In this case, what is expected may still not be fully digested.
Federal funds rate target Consensus Forecast for Mar 22 05: 2.75 percent (+0.25 percent)
