We think the dollar rally still has further to run

We think the dollar will appreciate further through at least the end of the year as the global economy continues to falter and “safe-haven” demand remains strong. Although we see limited scope for a further widening of expected interest rate differentials in favour of the greenback, we expect an environment in which the Fed and other major central banks continue to tighten monetary policy, even as economic growth slows, to support further dollar strength. We expect risky assets to remain under pressure for some time yet, and we believe that long-term yields have already peaked for this cycle. And previous peaks in the 10-year US Treasury yields have, more often than not, coincided with further dollar appreciation. We think a similar story will play out this time around as safe-haven demand makes the dollar, alongside the yen and the Swiss franc, the best performing currencies over the rest of this year and, probably, some way into 2023.
