Week in FX AMERICA Sept 9-14: Getting Rid of the USD Quickly

The “Big dollar” is likely to lose ground most persistently against higher-yielding EM currencies, especially those, which are considered, undervalued such as the INR and MXN. The JPY is also likely to resume gains in a world where most G10 CBanks are in easing mode. This will surely upset the MoF and BoJ who have been rather vocal in trying to preserve currency normality without it being held to ransom by speculators. The market will need to refocus on the poor Euro fundamentals and Grexit before we see dollar market support again. This market move is “rich.” Despite the bigger than expected Fed stimulus, one hears the rumblings of “diminishing returns of QE.” Many are looking to fade the EUR gains, although so far the only fading would be hard end profits. Counter trading the CBanks, the ECB, Fed and PBoC stimulus can get very costly.

Below are some other highlights of the week:
