US Dollar May Rise as Powell Speech Boosts Fed Rate Hike Bets

US Dollar May Rise as Powell Speech Boosts Fed Rate Hike Bets

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

TALKING POINTS – US DOLLAR, POWELL, FED, AUSSIE DOLLAR, RBA, CAD, USMCA

A lackluster offering on the European economic calendar is likely to see currency markets looking ahead to a speech from Fed Chair Jerome Powell for direction cues. He is due to opine on the US economic outlook at an event hosted by the National Association for Business Economics (NABE). An upbeat tone echoing last week FOMC policy announcement may boost 2019 rate hike bets and send the US Dollar higher.

TALKING POINTS – US DOLLAR, POWELL, FED, AUSSIE DOLLAR, RBA, CAD, USMCA

The Australian Dollar was little-changed followinga status-quo monetary policy announcement from theRBA. Governor Philip Lowe and company kept the baseline cash rate at 1.5 percent as widely expected and signaled continued stasis in the near term. Priced-in policy bets implied in bank bill futures envision an increase no sooner than October of next year.

The Canadian Dollar continued to move higher, building on explosive gains scored yesterday after negotiators managed to strike a deal on a revamped NAFTA trade agreement after over a year of haggling. The new framework will be called the “US-Mexico-Canada Agreement”, or USMCA. Hopes for a deal emerged on Friday, starting what would become the largest two-day rise since January 2016.
