Below are yesterday’s ATRs (a market volatility measure), compared to their 20-day averages.
Some confusion & lack of direction in FX markets as FED officials send contradictory signals.
Besides the “tough” & hawkish rhetoric by CBs, there is an obvious will to somehow support markets.
Good for the markets but at the same time, we believe inflation at not-so-lower levels will be here for some years.
Having the Chinese consumer get back into spending mode this year will inject inflation pressures into the system & the inflation vol will remain high for this year.
It will not be easy for the FED & other central banks not to keep rates at a much higher than usual level, for the year to come.
