USD PRICE OUTLOOK: US DOLLAR AIMING HIGHER INTO MONTH END BUT GIVES BACK SOME GAINS AFTER 2Q GDP REPORT

  • USD price action on the offensive headed into month-end but fading after US GDP data
  • 2Q US GDP report printed a jaw-dropping 32.9% collapse in economic activity
  • US Dollar is down over 4% for July and the recent bearish trend may continue

The broader US Dollar has declined well over 4% throughout July judging by performance of the DXY Index, but the popular basket of major currency pairs was attempting to claw back some downside early during Thursday’s trading session with month-end upon us. A short-lived relief bounce in the Greenback looks like it is reverting back lower as USD price action reacts negatively to 2Q-2020 US GDP data that just crossed the wires.

Likewise, the Dollar-Yen slipped to intraday lows as market participants digested US GDP data for 2Q-2020. Spot USD/JPY price action nevertheless trades modestly higher on balance for Thursday at the time of writing. In addition to traders’ reactions to yesterday’s FOMC statement and today’s GDP data likely weighing on the US Dollar, month-end rebalancing could be another factor as well as S&P 500 earnings and fiscal stimulus talks.
