DXY/ USD - FED YELLEN, MESTER & EVANS SPEECH HIGHLIGHTS

TVC:DXY   US DOLLAR CURRENCY INDEX
2 months ago
USD has traded relatively flat following the slew of Fed speakers in the past 8hrs - despite Dec             Fed Funds steepening aggressively from <50% implied probability to 56% probability of a hike. Perhaps more interestingly though, is that a fed hike has never happened in the past unless fed funds have priced 50% and recently we have traded below this figure which makes the December hike somewhat less than certain.

From here USD positioning looks tight/ flat, there isnt much directional bias imo given one hike this year is unlikely to drive USD higher (which is the most likely outcome) - thus bets against the fed is where any real alpha will lie (given a fed hike in dec             is unlikely to give the USD a boost). We are well behind this years expectations and i think this may even weigh on the December likelihood. Has the Fed lost their trigger finger is perhaps the most important question, closely followed by trumps ability to make a valid run for the presidency, where both have risks assymetrically skewed to the downside.. thus imo its fair to say the USD future is fairly bleak.

Equities remain stubborn on the Feds accomodation, and now the USDJPY             100 target has been hit imo EUR$ and GBP$ longs on dips make sense; particularly into 1.295 (a continued tactical trade) where the brexit political uncertainty i feel is massively overpriced already (along with future BOE easing limited here whilst data holds up) - hence taking advantage of these "shock dips" for 100-200pips has/ is paying wel. Whilst he ECB/ FED divergence driver is alot flatter than was anticipated earlier in the year as the fed becomes structurally more dovish and the ECB more hawkish.
