US Dollar Outlook: July 2020 IHS Markit Flash PMIs Send USD Price Action Lower vs Euro & Yen

  • IHS Markit Flash US Composite Output Index climbed to 50.0 for July as economic activity continues rebound
  • US Dollar selling pressure exacerbated likely owing to the latest PMI readings with America’s recovery lagging Europe’s
  • EUR/USD advances above the 1.1600-price level and USD/JPY drops sharply on the back of sustained US Dollar weakness

The US Dollar continues to nosedive and sinks the broader DXY Index to a 21-month low. USD price action has endured considerable selling pressure since May and the latest release of flash PMI readings from IHS Markit looks to exacerbate the Greenback’s recent bearish trend.

EUR/USD price action responded positively to the PMI data just crossing the wires with the most liquid and heavily traded major currency pair extending its advance above the 1.1600-handle. US Dollar downside has also accelerated against its Japanese Yen peer as FX traders send spot USD/JPY spiraling below the 106.00-price level, which might follow the declining interest rate spread between US Treasuries and Japanese Government Bonds.
