Dollar weakened on rate cut hopes and soft ISM manufacturing report

10/6/2019

US dollar net long bets slid further to $33.32 billion from $34.62 against the major currencies during the one week period, according to the report of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) covering data up to June 4 and released on Friday June 7. The dollar weakening accelerated after the Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing PMI came in lower than expected for May and Federal Reserve chair Powell commented the central bank would ‘act as appropriate to sustain the expansion’.
