The emergence of the omicron coronavirus variant was the dominant risk event in November and could have an important impact on currency and risky asset markets over the next few months
The big story in October was the repricing of expected central bank policy, resulting in a sharp rise in short-end yields across the G10. Commodity-sensitive currencies such as AUD, CAD, and NZD led the move higher in two-year rates and currencies in response to continued upside inflation surprises, expected inflation, and a nearly 2.5% gain in the Bloomberg commodity index.
Currency markets are caught in the crosswinds of slower growth, higher yields/inflation, and higher equity market volatility, with USD as the clear beneficiary of these forces.
We have been providing currency management solutions since 1989, and today we have 25 currency professionals across four continents.
