The 1.8% decline in the US Dollar Index (DXY) last week was the largest since the second week of July. Economists at Société Générale analyze Greenback’s outlook.
DXY at risk of a deeper retracement towards 102.55
A close below the 200-DMA (103.62) put the DXY at risk of a deeper retracement towards 102.55.
In the most bearish tactical case, a decline towards 100 could follow if real yields keep falling towards 2% and nominal 10-year UST breaks below 4.36%/4.33%. However, the Dollar is now close to oversold levels and a rebound could be overdue.
The question is whether a rebound in Oil prices (Saudi/ OPEC+ production cut extension) would negate confidence of a soft landing in the US economy and speculation of a first rate cut in 1H24 which explains Dollar profit taking.
