ING Research maintains a bullish bias on the USD in the near-term.
"The dollar has recovered some ground, mostly against the Japanese yen (which is the most sensitive to the Fed factor) and some high-beta currencies. We think USD/JPY could climb back above 140.00 in the run-up to the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting next week, as markets take stock of strong jobs data and weigh a more hawkish outcome than previously expected," ING notes.
"We discussed yesterday how the dollar had fallen back to a neutral position versus G10 currencies. This means that a further drop in the dollar will need to see investors make a conviction call on an extended dollar bear trend as the room for long-squeezing has now shrunk significantly. We think such a call would be premature and expect a dollar recovery into year-end," ING adds.
