The dollar is having one of its deepest corrections of the year. Softer-than-expected US Q3 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) numbers later could see the dollar correct a little further, economists at ING report.
Focus on US GDP numbers
“Today we will receive third-quarter US GDP data. There are downside risks to the consensus figure of 2.4% QoQ annualised given softer residential investment and consumption. Such an outcome could feed the corrective forces currently at work for the dollar. That could possibly see the DXY correction extend all the way to the 100-day moving average at 108.42.”
“Some high US inflation data tomorrow and what should be a hawkish Fed next week should contain the depth and length of this dollar correction. And for those corporates with dollar needs over the next 3-6 months, this correction should be a good opportunity to secure dollars.”
