FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - According to Mansoor Mohi-uddin, Head of Foreign Exchange Strategy at UBS: “America's weaker than expected Q1 GDP print has raised concerns that this year's fiscal cuts may also result in another summer slowdown,” the analyst notes, adding: “Such fears are holding back our bullish view on the dollar for now.”
