AFP - We have repeatedly warned that the weakening of the dollar will be interrupted by sharp counter moves from time to time and this is what happened in the last couple of days. Surprisingly soft economic data out of the eurozone have been matched with US data that did not spoil current market optimism that the worst in the US is over and the US economy will do better in a not too distant future, allowing the Fed to signal a rate cut pause next week. Not even yesterday's horrible (US) new home sales data could jeopardize that view.
