Further rate cuts likely to add to the lira’s woes

The lira fell to a new low against the US dollar today as a result of a larger-than-expected cut of 200 bp to the 1-week repo rate by Turkey’s central bank (CBRT).

Dollar rally takes a breather as US Treasury yields stall

The US dollar looks set to end the week little changed against most currencies, as US inflation data – this week’s main data release – failed to push up the currency further. Next week, the minutes of the Fed’s July meeting may shed more light on policymakers’ latest thinking, and we expect the RBNZ will be the first among developed market central banks to raise rates with a 50bp hike, more than the 25bp hike that is widely anticipated.

We expect rising UST yields to extend the dollar’s rally

We expect further rises in US Treasury yields to support continued gains in the US dollar against most other developed market (DM) currencies, especially the yen and the Swiss franc.
