XE Market Analysis: Asia - Apr 16, 2021
April 16, 2021
FX trade was very light in N.Y. on Friday, with narrow ranges the case for most major Dollar pairings. The DXY matched Thursday's one-month low of 91.49 early in the session, later heading to 91.59 highs. Incoming data was slightly supportive of the USD, though ultimately had little impact. March housing starts were much stronger then expected, while preliminary April consumer sentiment rose, but not as much as forecast. Wall Street saw the Dow and S&P print fresh record highs, while the NASDAQ underperformed some.
XE Market Analysis: North America - Apr 16, 2021
April 16, 2021
The dollar has managed to find a toehold, rising above its prior day high for the first time in nine days today by the measure of the narrow trade-weighted FX index, which printed a three-day high at 91.82. The high marks an extension of the rebound from yesterday's one-month low at 91.49. The low was concomitant with the 10-year Treasury note yield hitting a five-week nadir at 1.53%, which extended the yield correction from the highs seen in late March to some 22 bp. The 10-year yield today lifted, by more than 6 bp at the highs.
