AUD-USD, which had extended its recent rebound to a new two-week high of 0.7166 ahead of the minutes, tumbled to the low 0.71s. Read more

XE Market Analysis: Asia - Sep 14, 2015

By: XE Market Analysis

The dollar was mostly lower in what was a relatively quiet Monday session in N.Y.. Major dollar pairings were range bound overall, as a lack of data, and proximity to Thursday's FOMC announcement kept the market in check.

Updating the mid-cycle indicators

By: New_Deal_democrat

While we have a host of economic indicators telling us if a recession is near, is upon us, or has recently ended (i.e., leading, coincident, or lagging indicators), the fact is that expansions tend to be much longer than recessions. Thus I have tried to develop "mid-cycle indicators," which are data series that can help tell us if we are in the earlier or later part of an economic expansion. Read more

The dollar perked up in the late European morning after edging fresh lows against the euro and yen during the Asian session.

The dollar rallied marginally after a hotter August core PPI print, though largely turned south from there. A much weaker Michigan sentiment print (one year low) undermined sentiment to a degree, though with the FOMC meeting looming next week, and odds somewhat reduced for a Fed rat lift-off, it appeared general paring of long USD positions was the pre-weekend driver from there.

There has been no clear direction in the main currencies so far today. The euro clawed out new highs against the dollar and yen, among other currencies, before retreating.
