The Dollar strengthened across the board on Tuesday with no clear catalyst. Economists at ING analyze the spurious USD rally.
We admit the Dollar jump was quite surprising, and without a clear catalyst, and therefore see room for the USD correction initiated overnight to extend today.
We suspect that in an environment that keeps pricing large Fed cuts, USD rallies aren’t very sustainable.
We’ll be awaiting the next leap higher in short-term USD rates to endorse a Dollar rebound.
