Key Quotes

“The USD bullish tone paused on Monday but the trend remains firmly in place”.

“Interestingly, the USD is strengthening without a sharp move higher in US yields”.

“The USD strength correlates with the rally in S&P500 and USTs”.

“As such, the USD is developing characteristics of an asset currency. USD-denominated assets such as equities, bonds and real estate, simply offer higher expected return than most other assets”.

“Hence, the USD will strengthen with or without higher US rates”.
