DXY/ USD: FED LOCKHART SPEECH HIGHLIGHTS

TVC:DXY   US DOLLAR CURRENCY INDEX
3 months ago
Fed Lockhart was cautious on the margin stating one rate hike in 2016 only "could" be appropriate rather than should which echoed the sentiment of the earlier Fed Dudley speech which was alot more hawkish imo. This has helped the USD back off its Dudley induced gain, and refocus on the CPI             miss as Lockhart reminded the market that " Some Signs Election Uncertainty Slowing Economy" and " 'Not Locked In' To Any Particular Monetary Policy Outlook Right Now" given the data uncertainty which continue to be the two biggest factors for the USD and future hikes going forward. Fed funds currently imply an p18% sept hike, up from 9% yesterday though - where i expect this to come down still into days end as CPI             miss is priced and Fed Dudleys sentiment is faded with th ereal hard data left in traders minds ( bearish ).

This in mind I continue to be bullish AUD with a 0.78 target (apprx 100pips).
