US AM Digest: US Dollar Claws Back Losses as US Equities Point Lower

With US equity futures turning lower before the open in New York, the US Dollar has been able to claw back some of its losses onset by the first FOMC meeting helmed by Fed Chair Jerome Powell. Despite the FOMC hiking rates by 25-bps, the hawkish tilt in the Summary of Economic Projections proved to be less hawkish than what traders were hoping for. Elsewhere, after initially trading higher on the back of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee’s 7-2 vote to keep rates hold (two dissenters calling for a 25-bps hike), the British Pound has seen a round of profit taking after a strong week thus far. Finally, the news wire remains perhaps the most important source of event risk given the grace period for the Trump administration’s tariffs coming to an end tomorrow.

US AM Digest: US Dollar Claws Back Losses as US Equities Point Lower

The North American economic calendar will see its typical high volume flow of releases today, with the weekly US jobless claims figures already having been released (and still pointing to considerable strength in the US labor market). Later today, the February US Leading Index will be released, which is set to come in at +0.5% from +1.0% (m/m) – a sign that US growth momentum may be cooling. Similarly, the preliminary March US Markit PMIs will be released at 9:45 EDT/13:45 GMT.

US AM Digest: US Dollar Claws Back Losses as US Equities Point Lower

IG Client Sentiment Index Chart of the Day: GBPUSD

US AM Digest: US Dollar Claws Back Losses as US Equities Point Lower

GBPUSD: Retail trader data shows 39.1% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.56 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 18.9% lower than yesterday and 15.2% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 14.7% higher than yesterday and 14.1% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests GBPUSD prices may continue to rise. Traders are further net-short than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger GBPUSD-bullish contrarian trading bias.
