The dollar erased its weekly gains, closing marginally lower by 0.02% to 96.8 after the US Federal Reserve’s Williams commented on the need for the central bank to “act quickly” as economic growth slows, fuelling market players to add bets on a 50-basis point (bps) cut in July’s FOMC meeting.
THE greenback added 0.35% to 97.08 on favourable job market data. Unemployment rate remained at 3.7% for the third consecutive month, with the labour force participation rate staying at 62.9% for the second consecutive month and wage growing at the same pace as in October by 3.1% y-o-y, 0.2% m-o-m.
THE US dollar slipped by 0.32% to 93.489 to the euro despite the Fed’s expected rate hike to 1.25%-1.50% while increasing economic growth forecast for 2018.
THE US dollar attempted to embark on a new winning streak after its previous one was halted on Wednesday as investors cashed out some gains. The greenback found a tail wind in May as the markets was rethinking future course for Federal Reserve policy as hawkish squawk from several Fed officials have been keeping hopes flickering for a rate hike in the months ahead.
THE US dollar was in a consolidation mode on weaker Chinese data and deflationary fears following the sharp plunged in copper prices.

THE US dollar, proxied by the US dollar index (DXY), strengthened further on steady positive US data flows, which in turn helped lift its bond yields. The yield on the US 10-year note kept above 2.6% and not far from its one-month peak of 2.65%. As long as the yields stick close to recent peaks, downside risk for the dollar proved to be mild.
