US Dollar Price Volatility Outlook: Data & Fed Cuts in Focus

US Dollar Price Volatility Outlook: Data & Fed Cuts in Focus

Rich Dvorak, Analyst

US DOLLAR CURRENCY VOLATILITY FORECAST – SUMMARY POINTS:

  • USD currency pairs are expected to continue exhibiting heightened price action on balance judging by elevated overnight US Dollar implied volatility measures
  • GBPUSD remains in focus as Brexit drama intensifies while key US economic data on deck highlights EURUSD and USDJPY
  • Check out this week’s US Dollar Price Technical Forecast for additional USD insight

The US Dollar slid considerably during Wednesday’s trading session, which largely erased gains recorded earlier in the week. Although, the move was largely driven by the EURUSD and GBPUSD recovering recent losses owing to better-than-expected Eurozone PMI data and the latest Brexit developments.

US DOLLAR IMPLIED VOLATILITY & TRADING RANGES (OVERNIGHT)

US Dollar Price Volatility Implied Trading Range

Looking at the latest overnight US Dollar implied volatility, USD price action is expected to be higher on balance. EURUSD overnight implied volatility is above its 5-day average but remains in the bottom 50th percentile relative to the last 12-months. USDJPY overnight implied volatility is interestingly below its 5-day moving average and stands out considering August ISM Services Data could spark a sizable reaction in spot prices and broadly dictate market risk appetite tomorrow.
