Can the US Dollar Sustain its Gains? The U.S. dollar is strong and the market’s reaction to what was an unquestionably weak jobs report is a testament to their commitment to driving the greenback higher ahead of September’s FOMC meeting. But even with this rise, some of the major currencies still held up well against the mighty dollar. Sterling, the Australian and Canadian dollars ended last week higher versus the greenback while the euro, Japanese Yen and New Zealand dollar underperformed. In the week ahead this unevenness could continue as non-U.S. data steals the limelight. There are 3 central bank rate decisions, China’s trade balance, Australian and Swiss GDP along with Canada’s employment report scheduled for release. In contrast, the U.S. has a far lighter data calendar but Fed speak will be in focus.    ... Continue reading...

Will EURO Break 1.20? Jackson Hole was damaging but not a disaster for the U.S. dollar. The greenback traded lower against all of the major currencies with the EUR/USD rising to its strongest level since January 2015 and USD/JPY sinking back towards 109.00 before settling above that level. In some ways the move was surprising because Janet Yellen’s comments should have been positive rather than negative for the greenback. She said substantial progress has been made in their twin goals of hitting 2% inflation and full employment and she also felt that excessive optimism could return sooner or later.    ...

Can Jackson Hole Reverse the Dollar’s Fate? The single most important theme in the financial markets this past week was risk aversion. The Dow Jones Industrial Average experienced its largest one day decline in 3 months while the VIX, which measures the volatility in the equity market rose to its highest level since April. Although many currency pairs ended the week not far from where they started, the lack of major changes masks sharp mid-week reversals. The Swiss Franc was the best performer, confirming that uncertainty drove the move in currencies. While the U.S. dollar nose-dived against the Japanese Yen after almost hitting 111 it ended the week higher versus euro and sterling. The Australian, New Zealand and Canadian dollar managed to hold up pretty well but all 3 could be vulnerable to risk aversion if U.S. stocks sell-off in the coming week.   ... Continue reading...

How Bad is Nuclear War for the Dollar? The biggest driver of currency flows this past week had nothing to do with monetary policy or economic data. Instead, the escalation of tensions between the U.S. and North Korea sent USD/JPY sharply lower as investors worry that this heated exchange could result in military action. Although we firmly believe that the threat of war, let alone nuclear war is slim, this has been one of the most unpredictable eras in history so we have to be prepared for the impossible. Many of our readers are asking how far the dollar could fall if the U.S. goes to war with North Korea but before discussing this, we want to point out that while the dollar is down sharply this week versus the yen, it strengthened against other major currencies such as sterling, the Australian and New Zealand dollars. So while there’s no question that war is negative for USD/JPY it can initially drive the dollar higher against high beta currencies such as AUD and NZD. As a rule of thumb, the Japanese yen and Swiss franc perform best during times of war, which means all of the Yen crosses including USD/JPY will weaken.    ... Continue reading...
