Greenback dips, threatened by cautious approach.

19-07-2022 04:53

“Two prominent hawks from Fed favors conservative approach in tightening monetary policy.”

US dollar extended is drip from higher levels as Fed remains conservative with regards to future policy tightening plans. Previously, investors poured into the greenback as they expect Fed to deliver a super-sized tightening of up to 100 basis point rate hike. However, such expectations waned after Fed member Christopher Waller and James Bullard favor a 75-basis point hike instead. Nonetheless, the currency remains well supported from the downside due to divergence in policy between Fed and other major central banks.
