We expect yields to support further USD strength before long

Although the recent surge in US government bond yields has made little impact on the US dollar, which has been broadly flat over the past month or so, we still think that widening yield differentials will continue to push the greenback higher against most currencies this year.

We think the peak in Treasury yields is still to come

We doubt that the 10-year Treasury yield has peaked in this cycle. Admittedly, it has fallen back markedly on net over the past couple of weeks; having briefly climbed above 3.20% earlier this month, it is now at around ~2.85%. But, it has risen ~5bp so far today and we suspect that it will climb a lot more over the next 12 months or so.

We doubt consumer staples will continue to underperform “tech”

We doubt the consumer staples sector, which has been hit particularly hard in the recent sell-off in the S&P 500, will continue to underperform “tech”-heavy sectors.

What to make of the latest falls in the S&P 500

Although the S&P 500 has stabilised at the time of writing, its 4% drop yesterday has brought the index close to a bear market. We suspect there may be more pain to come for equities, even if the US economy avoids a recession and the functioning of core markets holds up.

Slow start to 2022 for FX markets ahead of US inflation

Today’s US non-farm payrolls report had little impact on currency markets, with the dollar set to end the week broadly unchanged against most other currencies. This extends a pattern of low volatility in FX markets over the past few weeks, leaving the DXY index near its highest level since July 2020 and “high-beta” currencies somewhat stronger as fears about the economic impact of Omicron have faded.

Taking stock of the US dollar’s prospects in 2022

Although we wouldn’t be surprised if the rally in the US dollar paused in the short term, we still expect the relative strength of the economic recovery in the US and monetary tightening there to push the greenback higher against most currencies in 2022.

Diverging monetary policies may extend the USD rally

Today’s US CPI data produced a relatively limited reaction in the US dollar, which is set to end the week a bit weaker against most major currencies. Attention now turns to the 17(!) central bank meetings next week, including the Fed, ECB, BoE, and BoJ. With next week’s economic data releases generally lower profile ones, we think the divergence in the outlook policy rates among the Fed and other major central banks will set the tone for FX markets going into the new year.
