Forex market in 2017 and beyond - Political factors will continue to play the leading role

Idiosyncratic factors and political events (Brexit, US elections) played a major role in forex markets replacing monetary policy of major central banks as the main determinant of exchange rates as it was the case in the past years.

The consequences of political ruptures in 2016 will continue to be felt in the foreign exchange market in 2017. The dollar is expected to temporally benefit from long-term interest rates divergences and monetary policy between the United States and major advanced economies. That said, unless the new US administration unveils a large fiscal stimulus plan, it is unlikely that the long-term interest rates divergence to continue indefinitely in 2017. Over the course of the year, we assess rising risks could emerge for the euro due to a progressive rise in inflation and the likely resurgence of issues about the duration of the ECB’s quantitative easing programme.
