TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar held steady on Tuesday, a day after investors trimmed short bets against it on a bounce in U.S. bond yields to generate its second biggest daily gain against the yen this year.
Positioning against the dollar has ballooned to record levels in recent months as soft economic data and an impending change of guard at the Federal Reserve has made markets extend bets that U.S. interest rates are unlikely to go up any time soon.
“Nothing fundamental has changed about the outlook for the dollar, namely that the market has become more sceptical about the Fed’s intention to raise rates in the near term and Thursday’s inflation data may bolster those bets,” said Antje Praefcke, an FX strategist at Commerzbank AG in Frankfurt.
