The Federal Reserve's latest action will hurt the U.S. dollar but benefit a few other trades, commodities trader Dennis Gartman said Wednesday on CNBC.

On "Fast Money," the editor of The Gartman Letter explained his gold position.

"I'm openly bullish of gold. I'm going to continue to be long of gold in yen terms," he said. "If you look at a chart of gold in yen, it is up in the course of the last month and a half. Gold in dollar terms is down. Gold in euro terms is actually down. It should continue."

Gartman also laid out how he held gold positions while shorting Japanese yen.

The Federal Reserve's announcement of continued bond-buying and low interest rates helped some assets and hurt others.

"What the Fed has just done, it's done damage to the U.S. dollar," Gartman said.

The beneficiaries, he added, would be stocks, gold and most commodities, as well as Australian, Canadian and New Zealand dollars.
