There’s been talk that the US economy may well be far worse than it appears, and that the Fed is compensating with artificially inflated prices to keep USD sentiment rosy. It’s not considered factual yet, but plenty of indicators supporting the conclusion exist, and the judgemental finger is pointing squarely at the Fed. If the Fed really inflated the US economy with hot air, then USD will surely experience an epic fall and EURUSD ‘Sell’ orders will likely rise in the coming days and weeks.
US economy up, Treasury bonds down
USD is holding high against all the major currency pairs, but US treasury bond prices don’t indicate that same stability. Several recent news releases speak of bond investors who claim shocking results after the previous Fed forecasts for US growth suggested rates are once again on the rise. These articles caused quite a stir and made a global impact on the 10-year treasury bond yield.
US Treasury bonds abroad
On the London Exchange, the basepoint first dropped to only 2.51% then created a domino effect hitting Germany then France and even Italy. The wave then crossed the Atlantic and hit home hard. The S&P ended up closing 0.3% lower, which is not grounds for panic, but it could be signs of what’s to come.
Speculators are now saying that the Fed is preparing for another set of hefty rate cuts. USD traders are already seeing forecasts that show cuts of up to 40% by the end of 2019. If these forecasts prove to be accurate, then why does the US Economy look so stable? Even more interesting, is what options are available on the foreign exchange market for people in the know.
