The Dollar has remained close to the March highs. Economists at ING analyze Greenback’s outlook.

Positioning consolidates in favour of Dollar

CFTC data show that the net Dollar positioning has increased for eight consecutive weeks and has now moved into net-long territory. Speculators remain net-long EUR/USD at +15% of open interest as of last week, which was however the lowest level since October 2022. 

Today, the US calendar includes Housing Starts and Building Permit figures for the month of August, which are unlikely to impact markets. 

DXY should keep trading close to 105.00 into the Fed.
