The Big Picture
The USD is supported against the Euro, Yen and British Pound by investor rate expectation. These investors are expecting the Fed to raise interest rates in December. This move, however, has been discussed very controversially by Fed members ahead of the last two meetings. Other large central banks are still following expansive monetary policy. The ECB´s head Draghi is looking to expand the bond buying program beyond March 2017. The Japanese central bank is looking to expand their loose monetary policy. The Yen has risen 15% against the USD this year, its strength damaging the Japanese export industry. The Bank of England will in response to damage caused by the Brexit, also look to stabilize the economy using expansive policy.
