Central Banks also have the power to create money out of thin air. Yes central banks can create money.

This power to increase/decrease money supply is also used by central banks to achieve their policy objectives.

Federal Reserve is mandated with the task of keeping inflation and unemployment under 3%.

Macroeconomics is an important subject that many currency traders don't learn or understand.

Monetary policy is a very tool at the disposal of central banks which they often use to control currency markets.

Did you notice whenever Bank of Japan (BOJ) makes a monetary policy statement it moves USDJPY big time sometimes it results in a 1000 pips move.
