US Dollar Index looks to yields, stocks

The index has accelerated the leg lower and navigates the area of multi-day lows around the 95.00 handle following a sharp retreat in US yields and the continuation of the sell off in the US stocks markets, which so far printed the largest drop under the Trump Administration.

In fact, yields of the US 10-year note dropped to the 3.12% late on Thursday, where appear to have met some decent support.

In the meantime, the demand for the buck continues to suffer another bout of criticism to the Fed’s policy by President Trump.

Looking ahead, the flash reading of the US Consumer Sentiment for the current month and Export/Import Prices are due next on the docket.
