FX Trends: USD to extend rally, but…

23 Apr 2024

Key takeaways

  • The USD is leading other G10 currencies so far in 2024, supported by a big shift in the pricing of Fed cuts
  • For the USD to stay ahead, other support would probably be needed, including the existing level of USD yields, dovish moves outside the US, and possible bouts of risk aversion
  • We see the GBP, the AUD, and NZD facing near-term downside risks against the USD
