Earlier I wrote on the U.S. dollar/Japanese yen (USD/JPY) currency pair, highlighting a potential breakout in that pair above a long-term bearish trend line. In fact, weakness in the yen is a dominant theme as the ongoing stock market rally continues to undermine the appeal of the safe haven currency. One interesting yen pair to watch this week could actually be the Canadian dollar/Japanese yen (CAD/JPY), due to the Bank of Canada’s rate decision tomorrow.
The British pound/U.S. dollar (GBP/USD) currency pair broke down earlier on the back of a slightly disappointing UK wages data and after reports emerged that Prime Minister Theresa May could lose an important parliamentary vote on Brexit. Apparently, Labour will support a move from pro-European Tory MPs to keep the UK in a customs union with the EU if no trade deal is reached by January.
The euro flattened out early gains as the Pound dropped a penny on Brexit uncertainty at 8:30 am CT. While the pressure bled into the Euro, we do find this move a bit more technical than fundamental. The paring also occurred when ECB President Mario Draghi began speaking; he was upbeat on the economy and the positive effects of quantitative easing.
After a strong start to this week’s trade, the U.S. dollar is on the back foot on the final trading day of the week, month, and quarter. The proximate cause for the buck’s weakness is good news overseas: specifically, the EU countries reached an agreement on migration, while the UK’s Q1 GDP was revised up by 10 basis points to 0.2% quarter-over-quarter.
The U.S. dollar remains among the strongest of currencies out there. Not only is it finding support from safe-haven flows amid the current stock market weakness, but it is also in demand due to the growing disparity between monetary policies in the U.S. against other major economies.
