Another 0.25% US interest cut is fully priced-in for the September FOMC meeting with markets also seeing a 16% chance of a 0.50% rate cut as the central bank gets set to loosen monetary policy further as recession fears grow. US President Donald Trump is looking for 100 basis points of rate cuts, according to his Twitter account, as he continues to state that the US dollar is too high and uncompetitive against the other majors.
Yet the greenback refuses to wilt and move lower with the daily US dollar chart dominated by an unbroken trend of higher lows from late-June onwards, sending the price back to challenge its recent 98.47 high, the highest level seen since mid-May 2017. The dollar is also above all three supportive moving averages. The CCI indictor shows the USD nearing overbought territory, although its recent rise is slowing down.
The dollar is picking up a bid from a weak Euro and Brexit-weakened British Pound, but its recent rally may be setting up the market for a ‘buy the rumor, sell the fact’ moment that could see the supportive uptrend, currently around 97.28, tested in the short-term.
