(Bloomberg) – Investors in new markets seem to have a lot to do with them right now – and the renewed weakness of the US dollar contributes to the bullish sentiment.
MSCI Inc.’s index listing of developing country currencies rose to a record high on Friday as the dollar posted its biggest weekly decline in 2021, even as US interest rates rose. A measure of implied volatility fell to its lowest level since July, underscoring optimism about a vaccine-led global recovery and the prospect of more US stimulus.
“Global growth must be very strong over the next six months as vaccination campaigns unfold,” Goldman Sachs Group Inc strategists, including Zach Pandl and Kamakshya Trivedi, wrote in a note. “We expect global cyclical forces to dominate some degree of ‘US outperformance’, resulting in a dollar decline for most crosses.”

Governor Perry Warjiyo seemed to mark such a step in testimony to parliament last week Fixed balance of payments, including inflows to local bond markets, and eight-month CPI below target make room for a cut Rupee has also been stable since the last price meeting, and Bank Indonesia is likely to support the currency with rhetoric as well as intervention if necessary A surprising team could be marginally positive for currency, according to a study by BloombergIndonesia’s trade balance in January due Monday and expected to show a continued surplusThe current fourth quarter account data released on Friday And must remain in surplus. The surplus in the last two quarters of 2020 is the first since 2011 and creates room for Bank Indonesia to loosen monetary policy. Turkey’s central bank is expected to keep its repo rate at one week at 17%, according to most economists surveyed by Bloomberg; only three predict a 100 basis point increase “The lira has risen and reserves are rising, giving no reason to raise interest rates further,” according to Bloomberg EconomicsDerivatives traders paired their bearish play on the lira in a fourth week in the five days through to a month’s risk reversal, Governor Naci Agbal has promised to keep politics tight after raising the benchmark rate by 675 basis points to 17% since his appointment in November
