US dollar collapse as Fed fails to excite traders.
“Fed toning down on aggressiveness hinder further bets.”
Greenback relinquished, hovering near one-month low as latest meeting minutes from Federal Reserve failed to excite market bulls. On yesterday, the minutes confirmed recent comments from Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic who suggested a pause on rate hikes in September. Bostic emphasize that the exercise is necessary to monitor the effects of policy tightening on US economy. Evidently, recent revelation on Fed’s eventual plan on rate hike has diminished market bull’s commitment to place further bets on greenback. In return, market participants shifted their focus towards other risky assets.

ZFX Analyst’s Comment
In lieu of recent developments, market sentiment towards the Fed continues to diminish following plans to pause future rate hikes. Likewise, other major central banks such as ECB who signaled for a possible lift in interest rate may provide further support towards other major currencies.
