US Dollar, British Pound, Euro, Key Inflation Gauge, German CPI

Recommended by Daniel Dubrovsky

How to Trade EUR/USD

The US Dollar experienced mixed performance against its major peers this past week. Looking at the chart below, the British Pound was the worst performer weakening about -1.2%. Meanwhile, the New Zealand Dollar was better off, rallying around 1.1%.

Meanwhile, Wall Street took a plunge in the aftermath of the Federal Reserve monetary policy announcement. The Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composited fell -1.9%, -2.9% and -3.6%, respectively.

The central bank’s pursuit to bring inflation down is now primarily coming in the form of pushing up expectations of a higher terminal rate. In other words, policymakers are seeing a scenario where interest rates stay higher for longer.

As such, we saw the 10-year Treasury yield surge 2.4% this past week, closing at the highest since late 2007. This also pushed up 30-year mortgage rates, further contributing to a general rise in borrowing costs as quantitative tightening continued.

Key event risk next week includes the Fed’s preferred inflation gauge, German inflation data, Chinese manufacturing PMI, and more. What else is in store for financial markets in the week ahead?
