    Since our last episode, the US dollar has rallied against almost every other G10 currency, with the sole exception of the Swiss franc, which has benefitted from the hawkish turn from the Swiss National Bank. The main theme in markets has been one of risk aversion, as investors and economists pencil in weaker global growth during the remainder of 2022 and into next year.

    S3E15: Dollar loses steam after EUR/USD falls below parity

    S3E15: Dollar loses steam after EUR/USD falls below parity

    We’de like to hear from you! Provide us with feedback so we can improve the podcast: https://linktr.ee/fxtalk 

    The main talking point has been the move below parity in EUR/USD for the first time since December 2002. The pair teetered on the brink of parity for a couple of sessions, before falling fairly comfortably below it on Thursday. A divergence in natural gas prices across the Atlantic was largely to blame for the move, with last week’s hotter-than-expected US inflation report enough to drive the pair through the key psychological level. 
    We have, however, seen a recovery in the euro since then, with EUR/USD moving back above the 1.02 level on rising bets in favour of a 50 basis point interest rate hike from the European Central Bank when it meets on Thursday.

    S3E13: Swiss franc flex its muscles, again

    S3E13: Swiss franc flex its muscles, again

    The Swiss franc was the best performing currency in the G10 last week after the SNB shocked markets by announcing a 50 basis point interest rate hike - the consensus was for no change. The bank also changed its wording on the franc, no longer calling it ‘highly valued’ and saying that it would be prepared to intervene in the market on both sides.

    S3E12: A long time coming: ECB sets stage for historic rate hike

    S3E12: A long time coming: ECB sets stage for historic rate hike

    Markets will have one eye on next Wednesday's FOMC meeting. The Fed is set to raise rates by another 50 basis points next week and signal more hikes are coming at upcoming meetings. This will be followed by the Bank of England’s latest policy decision on Thursday. 
    But we’re going to focus first on Thursday’s ECB announcement, which delivered a long awaited hawkish pivot. In the bank’s statement, it explicitly said that it would raise interest rates by 25 basis points at its July meeting, and follow this up with another one in September.

    S3E11: Don’t panic, a recession is not here yet

    S3E11: Don’t panic, a recession is not here yet

    On the whole, most economies rebounded well from the COVID induced slowdowns in 2021, as an easing in restrictions allowed for an unleashing in pent-up demand. While the strict covid restrictions are a thing of the past for most of us, a number of other downside risks to growth have materialized of late, causing markets and central bankers to fret that a slowdown could be on the cards during the remainder of the year.
