The euro decreased as the US dollar increased

The Fed is expected to be aggressive on raising the interest rate
On Wednesday, the Fed will conclude a 2-day policy meeting ending on 21st September. It is expected that the Fed will raise the interest rate by at least 75 basis points. In addition, the probability that the US Fed will increase the interest rate by 100 basis points is less than 20%.
The Fed is raising the interest rate at the fastest pace in 30 years. Although US CPI falls from a 40-year high of 9.1%, it is still high than the target of 2%. Fed officials think the Fed should take proactive steps in response.
The ECB will raise the interest rate to curb inflation
The ECB Governor Lagarde said on 20th September that interest rates would be raised in following months to curb inflation, adding that it signals our firm commitment to making the inflation return to the mid-term target of 2%.
Lagarde warned that Eurozone inflation had been revising the record high for the 10th straight month and it would continue increasing. Bottlenecks in supply and repressed service demands have made inflation expand to industry sector and service sector. Rising energy price caused by Russia-Ukraine conflict is major driver of Eurozone inflation.
