Forex Analysis: US Dollar Corrects Higher, Wells Fargo Earnings on Tap

Forex Analysis: US Dollar Corrects Higher, Wells Fargo Earnings on Tap

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

The US Dollar corrected higher overnight as prices digested the largest drop in four months. Wells Fargo earnings are now in focus for sentiment trends.

Talking Points

  • US Dollar Corrects Higher After Posting Worst Selloff in Four Months
  • Swiss CPI, UK Industrial Production Data Likely to Pass Without Fanfare
  • Risk Sentiment Trends Look to Wells Fargo Q4 Earnings for Direction

The US Dollar corrected higher – rising against all of its leading counterparts – as prices corrected after yesterday’s aggressive selloff. The greenback fell 0.6 percent, marking the largest single-day drop in close to four months, as risk appetite swelled in the wake of better-than-expected Chinese trade figures. The New Zealand Dollar underperformed.

The economic calendar is quiet in European hours. Swiss CPI is expected to fall 0.3 percent year-on-year in December, marking a narrow improvement from November but keeping deflation concerns alive. On balance, this represents the status quo and is unlikely to drive significant changes in forex traders’ outlook for SNB policy. A narrow improvement in UK Industrial Production will probably pass with little fanfare.

S&P 500 index futures are trading flat, offering no clear bearing on risk appetite trends for the time being. The US data docket is likewise lackluster, turning traders’ attention to the earnings calendar. Wells Fargo is due to report fourth-quarter results and the markets will be keen to gauge the bank’s guidance to inform their outlook for global financial conditions.
