Don’t try to trade the news.
Everyone knew the rate hike was on the way - it was already priced in.
In the UK, the Bank doubled interest rates recently, and the pound weakened on the news.
Trying to compete with institutional traders (and that’s what you were doing) on the basis of fundamentals is unwise. They’re always better researched and prepared and more responsive than a retail trader can ever be. Compete with them on technical analysis instead: you can do things they can’t, and have leverage and trade-management facilities available that they effecitvely don’t. You might find an edge, that way. You never will on fundamentals.
