He adds that USD weakness has been mainly concentrated against the major currencies of the euro, pound, Swiss franc, and yen with commodity and high yielding currencies continuing to under perform. Further, the sharp adjustment lower for the US dollar appears to have been mainly driven by position adjustment ahead to today’s US non-farm payrolls which is expected to reveal slower employment growth in May which may act to delay the Fed from tapering QE.
