The primary quarter of 2022 ended with the US greenback, Australian greenback and Canadian greenback as standout performers whereas the Turkish Lira, Russian Ruble, Japanese Yen and the Euro had been among the many worst performers (towards the greenback). I favor the commodity currencies towards the basically weaker currencies with comparatively dovish financial frameworks.

Constructive Outlook for the Canadian Greenback in Q2

The ECB additionally cautioned that it reserves the proper to change the dimensions and period of the web asset purchases in accordance with future information and financial outlook. Such optionality comes throughout as dovish in comparison with extra hawkish central banks, just like the Financial institution of Canada, which talked about on the March assembly that it anticipates charges must rise additional.
