The US Dollar Index (UUP) posted four consecutive daily declines in the previous week as trade tensions escalated between the US and its trading partners. The interesting thing, however, was that the decline in the US dollar was because of the declining bond yields rather than appreciation of other currencies. The increased positive correlation between the US dollar and the US bond yields was the key driver in the US dollar rally in recent weeks.
The US Dollar Index (UUP) managed a sharp recovery last week. The appreciation seemed to be due to tariff announcements instead of the Fed’s hawkish tone after the May FOMC meeting. The only interpretation of the rise in the US dollar would be that investors were seeing trade tensions as a temporary setback to global trade, which could result in a better deal for the US. The US Dollar Index closed for the week ending June 15 at 94.78 and appreciated 1.3%.
What's in Store for Foreign Exchange Markets This Week? The US Dollar Index (UUP) gave up some of its gains as short covering in the FX (foreign exchange) markets and a decline in US bond (BND) yields took their toll. Economic data from the US was limited, but traders’ anxiety about the G7 summit, the US-North Korea summit, and a series of central bank meetings limited any gains in the US dollar.
The US Dollar Index (UUP) continued to appreciate but did so slowly in the week that ended on May 25. Rising political uncertainty in Europe, seesawing trade negotiations between the United States and China, and the diplomatic tussle between the United States and North Korea had an impact on currency markets in the week.
