Forex Technical & Market Analysis FXCC May 31 2013

Will the Dollar Recover Too?

U.S. stocks and Treasury yields resumed their rise but the dollar failed to follow. Instead of trading higher, the greenback lost value against most of the major currencies. The EUR/USD rose above 1.30 and USD/JPY slipped below 101 after a round of weaker than expected economic data. Equity and fixed income traders shrugged off the data but FX traders refused to budge. Long dollar positions are still being cut which suggests that currency traders are still worried about the volatility in the financial markets and the eagerness of the Fed to taper asset purchases. U.S. equity and fixed income traders have completely ignored the 5% drop in the Nikkei overnight. Japanese stocks are 13% off its highs and if it continues to decline, it may have ripple effects over to U.S. markets and keep the dollar in corrective mode. However if the Nikkei stabilizes and starts to recover, then the dollar has a chance of joining the recovery.
