US Dollar Q1 Technical Forecast: Fading Excitement Leads to Range as Bulls Shy Away from 98.00

James Stanley, Senior Strategist

The European Central Bank has just announced an end to their bond buying program, and risk aversion has held through equity markets for the bulk of the quarter, with US stocks working on fresh lows as the end of 2018 nears. This is an environment that can keep FOMC policy in focus as the bank has recently started to slow projections for future rate hikes.
