- US Dollar retraces reduce after yesterday’s Yellen-inspired rise
- Australian Dollar stung by dovish change in RBA process outlook
- Year-end flows might flower amid liquidity drain, eventuality risk peace
The US Dollar retraced downward in overnight trade carrying outperformed opposite many of a vital counterparts yesterday. That pierce seemed to be desirous by hawkish comments from Fed Chair Janet Yellen that put a spotlight behind on a steepening in a projected 2017 rate travel trail in new weeks.
It was a Australian Dollar that underperformed however, losing aground opposite a whole G10 FX spectrum. The pierce tracked a dump in front-end bond yields, suggesting a change in RBA process bets toward a dovish side of a spectrum gathering a selloff. A unaccompanied hint for a pierce was not straightforwardly apparent.
Looking ahead, a still mercantile information calendar in European and US hours leaves markets rather rudderless. This joined with thinning pre-holiday liquidity conditions might make for muted activity. As noted in a weekly forecast however, a peace might give approach to market-wide reversals forward of a year-end.
