Greenback slipped, Fed speech in focus.
“Risk appetite increases due to lack of catalyst.”
The US dollar slipped against other major currencies on Tuesday, trimming prior gains as investors continued to cash out their profits. Economists postulate that recent retracement is likely to be temporary as the market lack of new catalyst to push the currency higher. Nonetheless, US dollar is expected to find its support in the mid to long-term due to robust economic performance when compared with other countries. This week, traders will place the limelight on speeches delivered by Federal Reserve members, especially Chairman Jerome Powell to catch new clues with regards to interest rate hikes. As of writing, traders are expecting Fed to raise interest rates by 50 basis points in June and July due to stubbornly high inflation rate in the US.
