ING Research highlights a scope for for further extension of the ongoing USD position adjustment.
"Realised levels of FX volatility remain near the highs of the year. For example, one-month EUR/USD realised volatility, at 14%, is back to levels not seen since April 2020. The dominant near-term theme is the aggressive position adjustment in FX, perhaps more so than in other asset classes, on the back of softer US price data," ING notes.
"Dollar price action does suggest the market is caught long dollars at higher levels and that corrective rallies in the dollar are tending to be relatively shallow. There is also a lot of buy-side interest in expectations (and hopes) that the dollar has peaked. If so, that will release some handsome gains for emerging market local currency bond and equity markets...Given the weight of long dollar positioning after a major 18-month bull trend, it looks too early to expect that this position adjustment has run its course," ING adds.
