The Fed also estimated the US GDP to grow by 3.8% in 2022, 2.5% in 2023, and 2% in 2024.

 

The dollar index fell against a basket of currencies by 0.1% to 93.3 points as of 05:33 GMT, after it hit a high of 93.5 points and a low of 93.3 points.

 

Copper December futures contracts fell 1% to $4.20 per pound.
