The main attention of players this week is focused on the Fed meeting, which is scheduled to start today. Its results, in particular, the decision on the key rate, are expected on Wednesday. Most market participants believe that it will be left unchanged. The regulator's actions will be influenced by the inflation rate - in August it showed the most intensive growth for more than a year, which was facilitated by a sharp rise in gasoline prices, investing.com writes. Players will be watching for any information regarding the regulator's next steps this year.
