US Dollar Forecast to Trade Lower on Crowd Sentiment
- EURUSD – Euro Forecast Remains Bullish vs USD
- GBPUSD – British Pound to Continue Rally
- USDJPY – Yen Remains in Long-term Uptrend
- USDCHF – Swiss Franc Forecast to Strengthen
- USDCAD – Canadian Dollar May Rally Further
- GBPJPY – British Pound Outlook Bullish vs Yen
Forex trading crowds remain net-long the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) against the Euro, British Pound, Swiss Franc, Canadian Dollar, and Japanese Yen—giving us contrarian signal that the currency may slide to further lows through upcoming trade.
We have continued to warn that the US Dollar hit bullish sentiment extremes and could trade lower against major counterparts. A key difference between this week and the last, however, is the fact that the USD has indeed seen a large correction and sentiment has moderated accordingly.
Recently range-bound price action in the S&P 500 has kept the US Dollar in similarly tight trading ranges. Indeed, a record US Dollar correlation to the Dow Jones Industrial Average emphasizes that moves in broader financial markets will continue to drive currencies. Thus we will continue to watch the Dow, but we maintain a modestly bearish US Dollar trading bias.
