  • US dollar could test support levels.

The US dollar is currently edging lower ahead of Wednesday’s FOMC minutes and is likely to remain range bound ahead of the release. US Treasury yields have pulled back off their recent lows but still look set to drift lower, while the 2yr – 10yr curve is positive by 16bps.The 3month-10yr US curve has already inverted this year.

This month’s FOMC minutes is expected to highlight the Fed’s current dovishness and indicate that interest rates will be kept at current levels for an extended period. Ongoing fears that global growth is slowing further will push the Fed towards erring on the side of caution before even considering hiking rates, especially after the last Fed dot plot was moved lower. While the robust job market growth will continue to please the Fed, growth is starting to fade lower and the central bank is likely to allow inflation to overshoot its target for a short-time before looking at any interest rate hikes.
