The latest Market Talks covering President Donald Trump and U.S. politics

The latest Market Talks covering President Donald Trump and U.S. politicsThe U.S. dollar could find some support from August seasonality, which tends to favor the currency, while profit-taking could keep the currency from weakening further in the short term, says Bank of America. Yet a recovery is not in sight, with market positioning showing that investors are still betting the dollar will fall. The failure to agree on additional U.S. fiscal stimulus is weighing on the currency and the longer the discussions take, the worse for the U.S. economy, says the bank. "The consensus, based on our discussions with investors, remains very much bearish," it says. The DXY U.S. dollar index is last flat at 93.3200.

An agreement on additional fiscal stimulus in the U.S. is probably already largely priced into the U.S. dollar, which indicates EUR/USD will continue to move sideways in the coming days, says Commerzbank. This suggests investors remain hopeful that the two main U.S. political parties will eventually break the impasse over the next round of coronavirus aid even if no more talks are scheduled. EUR/USD trades last down 0.1% at 1.1809.
