The US Dollar has been trapped in a sideways trading range for the trailing 12 months now. The primary trend is lower, and we continue to see near-term weakness from the DXY Index as well as most USD crosses.
Commodity-centric currencies have been some of the best performers versus the Dollar since early last year, although most of them have been correcting since Q1 or Q2, giving back a good deal of their earlier gains.
So, will we see a resurgence back to those risk-on pairs, or will they keep sliding lower against the Dollar?
Today, we’re going to focus specifically on the currencies of some of the largest oil-producing countries in the world.
This should give us information not just about currency markets, but also commodities and risk assets in general.
Let’s talk about it.
