U.S. dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

It was a fine run for the dollar during the six-week period ending May 25th – the day of this report. The Dollar Index never looked back after breaking from a pocket of congestion in the final week of April. The index ended this period achieving a six-month high of 94.3. The dollar benefited from higher US yields.

Against individual currencies, within this timeframe the dollar was impressive against the euro, which fell to buy only 1.165 dollars, from levels near 1.24; against the pound, which fell to buy 1.33 dollars, from 1.44; and against the New Zealand dollar, which fell to 0.69 from 0.738.

A warning on the dollar’s medium-term outlook was offered in May by Citibank. The bank argues that downward pressure on the dollar will resume because Washington’s planned fiscal spending will cause a further deterioration in the US’ twin deficits. The dollar might have 5 percent downside over 6-12 months and 10 percent downside in the long run, a Citi analyst said.

In the coming month, supporting the dollar against growth-sensitive currencies, which include CAD, AUD, NZD, SEK, NOK, SGD and most of the emerging market currencies, will be developments surrounding global trade. In May, trade tensions resurfaced after the US Commerce Department announced it would investigate automobile imports. In 2018, Washington had already announced tariffs on aluminium and steel imports, angering much of the rest of the world.
