FX Trends: Consolidation for most, but not the EUR and JPY

29 Feb 2024

Key takeaways

  • Much of the adjustment to US rate expectations may be complete for now...
  • …further USD gains will be more difficult; we look for consolidation in most G10 FX.
  • The ECB and BoJ meetings provide scope for some colour, with downside risks to the EUR and upside risks for the JPY.
