US Dollar Aims to Extend Rebound, Pound May Overlook Jobs Data

US Dollar Aims to Extend Rebound, Pound May Overlook Jobs Data

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

  • Yen falls, Aussie Dollar gains as risk appetite firms in Asia
  • Pound may not find lasting lead in UK jobless claims data
  • US Dollar may gain ground on hawkish Yellen, CPI report

The Japanese Yen was a standout loser in otherwise quiet Asian trade. Regional shares followed Wall Street higher, pressuring the standby anti-risk currency. Investors’ chipper mood likewise offered a lift to the sentiment-sensitive Australian Dollar, with a bit of upbeat economic data helping things along as well.

UK jobless claims data headlines the calendar in European trading hours. Economists’ forecasts point to a slight increase in applications for unemployment benefits. The outcome seems unlikely to leave a lasting impression on the British Pound considering its limited implications for near-term BOE policy.

Later in the day, the spotlight will turn to Washington, DC anew as Fed Chair Janet Yellen sits for a second day of Congressional testimony, this time in the House of Representatives. Another hawkish outing mirroring the tone of yesterday’s proceedings may offer a further lift to the US Dollar.

January’s US CPI data may also prove helpful on this front. The benchmark year-on-year inflation rate is expected to rise to 2.4 percent, the highest in almost five years. Price-growth data has tended to outperform analysts’ forecasts in recent months, hinting a still-higher reading may cross the wires.
