  • Fears of a rapidly rising inflation tied to recent increase in money supply appear overblown given the velocity of money likely remains weak.
  • Year to date USD movement appears to be primarily sentiment driven – appreciating in the downturn as investors sought safe havens and depreciating in the recovery as sentiment improves.
