A US debt crisis was averted and the markets were awash in relief. On cue the S&P 500 forged higher as fear lifted, but the dollar ended up collapsing... A market-wide tumble for the greenback contradicts expectations of a relief rally as credit risk for US assets diminishes. This tumble can be partially linked to the strong 'risk appetite' move that has resulted, but this theme draws serious doubt. Furthermore, this market performance looks a lot like the last market jolt following the FOMC's decision to defer Taper last month - a move that quickly fell apart. In today's Forex Strategy Video, we discuss the dollar's bearings and drivers along with options (AUDUSD vs GBPUSD) for different scenarios going forward.
