Monthly Currency Outlook September

Written by George Vessey, UK Currency Strategist 

Highlights include:

USD:  A Fed that starts to taper bond purchases by November could set the stage for an interest rate hike around mid-2022, a dollar-positive outlook.
CAD:  As of late August, polls suggested a narrow lead for Mr. Trudeau’s Liberals over the Conservatives and New Democrats.
GBP:  GBP/EUR volatility remains subdued following a brief period of volatility last month, but should €1.18 be breached once again, the €1.20 level becomes a more likely upside target before year-end.
EUR:  While market investors fear a new wave of infection in Europe and a downgrade of the area, the euro could re-rate toward $1.20 if that scenario does not eventuate.
JPY:  Monetary decisions from the main central banks, especially Fed and BoE whose markets bet on tightening actions this year or next, could impact global volatility.
