Explore Asia currency trend post-Fed hawkish stance. Analysis of DXY, gold, AUD, NZD, JPY, EUR, CHF, GBP, CAD, and oil.

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s speech provided little insight into US monetary policy in the US session. At the same time, Fed Governor Philip Jefferson adopted a more ‘hawkish’ stance, suggesting aggressive policy actions amid high uncertainty. The dollar index (DXY) reached 105.88 before retreating to 105.50. In the Asia session, DXY appeared vulnerable, likely declining to 105.30. The falling US dollar boosted gold prices to $1,960/oz, and WTI oil found support at $75.00 per barrel.
