The Relentless Run in USD is Set to Continue

The Relentless Run in USD is Set to Continue

James Stanley, Senior Strategist

- This is an interview between Sara Walker of IG.com and DailyFX Strategist, James Stanley, conducted on the morning after the Federal Reserve’s December 2016 rate hike.

- The primary topic of discussion was the relentless move that’s been seen in the Greenback in the post-election environment. After yesterday’s FOMC statement and press conference, that strength looks likely to continue as the Federal Reserve is getting more optimistic about the continued recovery in the United States and looking to hike rates more quickly than before the election.

- But this isn’t without risks, as we’ve seen before in January of this year. The United States is one of the lone economies looking at tighter policy options, and this could further expose the US Dollar to further gains. But – should the Dollar run too far, too fast – this could potentially de-rail the state of what’s been a rather tenuous U.S. recovery.

- We also looked at why the Yen may be one of the better currencies to pick on next year in anticipation of continued Yen-weakness.

- Regarding technical levels on the U.S. Dollar (as represented by ‘DXY’), we’re currently trading at 14-year highs and we’ve just broken above a major resistance level at 101.80. After such a major level gives way, it can often show back-up as support after a retracement. On the resistance side of the coin, potential levels at 105 and 109 could be interesting for longer-term targets on DXY.
