Graphic Rewind: US Dollar Rises Temporarily on Dovish ECB Comments

The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index rose higher on Thursday morning on Euro weakness before erasing the gains and returning towards the daily open.

The dollar index did not react significantly overnight to an impressive beat in Japanese economic expansion the first quarter, as the Bank of Japan remains focused on trying to raise inflation to its 2% target. USD/JPY jumped temporarily higher following the release, as Yen’s safe haven status often means it often fails to rise on improved economic news, even from its local economy.

The US Dollar moved 20 points higher and set a new 9-day high, as ECB members Mersch and Constancio both made comments implying that the central bank may further loosen policy through another rate cut or other non-conventional tools in the next meeting. The Euro declined over 50 pips against the US Dollar as London traders were coming online.

But the greenback’s gains were unwound in the New York session despite the announcement that annual inflation reached the Fed’s 2% target in April for the first time in 9 months. USD/JPY did not hold onto any gains following the CPI release, and the index fell back towards the daily open slowly after the release of industrial production below expectations.
