Daily Analysis For US Doller Index 14-06-2023

US Doller Index Analysis


Key Points: -


·       The US Dollar Index is trading near its lowest levels in three weeks, ending a two-day streak of gains.

·       Despite yields showing positivity, the US Dollar (USD) is weighed down by US inflation data, which strengthens the market's belief that the Federal Reserve (Fed) will maintain its current stance.


·       The cautious sentiment preceding the FOMC announcements provides support for the US Dollar's price.


·       Anticipations of a potentially hawkish pause from the US central bank underscore the importance of qualitative updates from the Fed.

Today's Scenario: -


The US Dollar (USD) struggles to recover from its recent lows and remains under pressure during the Asian session on Wednesday. The USD Index (DXY), which measures the USD against a basket of currencies, hovers around the 102.80 level, down more than 0.10% for the day. Traders eagerly await the outcome of the highly-anticipated Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) monetary policy meeting.


The FOMC is expected to announce its decision at 18:00 GMT on Wednesday, and it is widely anticipated that there will be no interest rate hike. This expectation is based on the latest US consumer inflation data released on Tuesday, which showed minimal growth in the headline Consumer Price Index (CPI) for May, and the annual increase was the smallest since March 2021. This has led to a cautious stance among USD bulls, although the downside seems limited leading up to the important central bank event.


Although the year-on-year inflation rate still exceeds the 2% target, the Fed may choose to maintain its hawkish stance. Furthermore, the market has priced in a higher probability of a 25 basis points rate hike at the July FOMC meeting. This has resulted in a sharp increase in US Treasury bond yields overnight. Combined with a slight decline in US equity futures, it prevents traders from taking aggressive bearish positions on the safe-haven USD and limits further losses.


In addition to the pivotal FOMC decision, investors will closely analyze the comments made by Fed Chair Jerome Powell during the post-meeting press conference for insights into the future path of interest rate hikes. This will significantly influence the short-term dynamics of the USD and help investors determine its next directional move. Meanwhile, the release of the US Producer Price Index (PPI) on Wednesday during the early North American session could provide some momentum to the USD.
