Key Quotes:

" FX markets can re-focus on monetary policy divergence and as the Federal Reserve marches towards the exit from QE and ZIRP, the dollar will rally "

"For now, the response in equity, credit and emerging markets is far more sanguine than during 2013's ‘Taper Tantrum' but USD will make gains across G10 FX. GBP/USD is a strategic sell, USD/JPY is targeting 110.50 next."

"EUR/USD positioning is still heavily short but a disappointing TLTRO take up maintains pressure on the ECB to ‘do more' (even if all they can really do is engineer a weaker currency). NZD is vulnerable to election news this weekend remains a short vs USD along with AUD. And after last weekend's Swedish elections, we remain bullish of USD/SEK and NOK/SEK."
