Greenback nurses losses on flourishing carry trades

Greenback nurses losses on flourishing carry trades

On Monday, the greenback nursed losses at a 10-month minimum versus a basket of currencies because market participants cheered positive Chinese data by simply piling into leveraged positions, including the Australian dollar as well as other high-yielding currencies.

Some of the biggest revenues were observed in the yen crosses, including sterling, which soared 0.1% because traders added bets that American interest rates would soar gradually in the nearer months after the latest data.

China's second-quarter GDP surpassed forecasts with an ascend of 6.9% on the year, while retail sale as well as industrial output were sturdy.

Versus the Japanese yen the greenback stood still, sticking to 112.575.

American rate lift expectations have been pared to less than a 50% likelihood after Friday’s inflation print and with no top-tier reports this week.

According to fresh positioning data, markets are turning bearish on the greenback.
