    [EN] Trump: Dollar ‘Getting Too Strong’

    Gerard Baker, Carol E. Lee and Michael C. Bender
    April 12, 2017

    ...

    As he nears the 100-day mark of his time in the White House, with crises in North Korea and Syria, deeply strained relations with Russia and his legislative agenda stalled at home, Mr. Trump discussed an array of issues facing his presidency during a 70-minute Oval Office wide-ranging interview with The Wall Street Journal.

    ...

    The president also said in the interview that the dollar “is getting too strong,” which will eventually hurt U.S. businesses and manufacturers. He left open the possibility of renominating Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen once her tenure is up next year, a departure from his campaign pledge.

    And, in another reversal from his campaign positions, Mr. Trump said that he supports the U.S. Export-Import Bank, which he said helps small companies. He said he plans to fill two vacancies on the bank’s board, which has been effectively paralyzed by three open seats.

    Mr. Trump spoke to the Journal just before a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, after which he said he no longer believes the alliance is obsolete, as he had maintained previously.

    Asked how he has changed since taking office, the former businessman—who as a candidate touted his ability to cut deals—said: “The magnitude of everything is so big, and also the decisions are so big. You know, you’re talking about life and death. You’re not talking about ‘you’re going to make a good deal.’”

    Trump tanks the dollar after saying it's 'getting too strong'

    John Melloy

    The U.S. dollar dropped suddenly on Wednesday after President Trump said the currency was "getting too strong" in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. The dollar hit a low of 109.08 against the Japanese yen, its lowest level since November.

    The U.S. dollar index, a basket of the greenback versus major currencies, dropped 0.5 percent in less than 15 minutes at around 3:10 pm ET following Trump's comments, which were unusual for a leader about their country's currency. The index remained lower by about 0.5 percent in late-afternoon trading.

    The euro touched a high of 1.0658 against the dollar, its highest since April 7.

    "I think our dollar is getting too strong, and partially that's my fault because people have confidence in me. But that's hurting—that will hurt ultimately," Trump said in the interview with the WSJ.

    The dollar index is still up a little more than 2 percent since Trump was elected.

    Trump says ‘strong dollar’ may be too strong for its own good

    ‘Look, there’s some very good things about a strong dollar, but usually speaking the best thing about it is that it sounds good.’

    Apr 13, 2017

    That’s the second, and less attention-grabbing (but arguably more revealing), sentence of an answer President Trump gave to a question about the U.S. dollar’s relative strength during a White House interview Wednesday with Wall Street Journal reporters.

    The previous sentence of his response found him accepting “blame” for the dollar’s elevated level on the currency market. (“I think our dollar is getting too strong, and partially that’s my fault because people have confidence in me.”)

    After his comments about the buck being too strong, the dollar tumbled Wednesday afternoon, hitting a five-month low against the yen.

    Trump had earlier, particularly during his successful campaign for the presidency when it was a signature issue, ripped China for keeping its currency artificially weak, to the disadvantage of American companies and the U.S. economy.

    He said in the Wednesday interview that his administration no longer planned to label China a currency manipulator.

    Dollar steadies after sliding on Trump says it's too strong

    Jemima Kelly
    Apr 13, 2017

    The dollar recovered from a two-week low against a broad index on Thursday, having slid after U.S. President Donald Trump said the currency was getting too strong and that he would prefer the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates low.

    The greenback and U.S. Treasury yields took a heavy hit after Trump's comments to the Wall Street Journal, in which he said the strength of the economy would hurt the dollar.

    But after losing 0.6 percent on Wednesday - its biggest one-day fall in over three weeks - the dollar recovered on Thursday, trading up 0.3 percent on the day by 1150 GMT.

    Having hit a five-month low of 108.73 in early Asian trading, the dollar steadied at 109.14 yen.

    "This is a little bit of a correction of the move we saw overnight following the comments from Trump," said Commerzbank currency strategist Thu Lan Nguyen, in Frankfurt. "Yes, it was negative what he said...but it’s not a big surprise – it wasn’t a U-turn in his rhetoric on the exchange rate so far,"

    "The question is: is he able to influence monetary policy in order to get a weaker dollar? That is still an open question."

    Trump's comments broke with a long-standing practice of both U.S. Democratic and Republican administrations refraining from commenting on policy set by the independent Federal Reserve. It is also unusual for a president to talk about the value of the dollar, a subject usually left to the U.S. Treasury secretary.

    The comments were seen by markets as a fresh reminder of the president's protectionist trade rhetoric, which has been a source of concern for dollar bulls.

    "Bearing in mind the administration’s continued verbal intervention in the FX market, we think that any near-term rallies in the dollar could stay relatively limited, despite the Fed raising rates at a moderate pace," said IronFX analyst Sakis Paraskevov in Cyprus.

    The dollar has shed 2 percent against the yen so far this week, with the safe-haven Japanese currency on a bullish footing because of a rise in geopolitical tensions.

    Investors are concerned about the upcoming French presidential election as well as possible U.S. military action against Syria and North Korea and an escalation of tensions with Russia.

    That Trump seemed unmoved by the already significant weakening of the dollar against the yen increased nervousness about the U.S. Treasury's semi-annual currency report due Friday, and next week's U.S.-Japan bilateral dialogue.

    The euro fell 0.4 percent to $1.0626.

    The dollar was on track for its third straight day of losses against China's yuan, after rising to a one-month high at the start of the week.

    Dollar extends recovery after jobless claims report

    Apr 13, 2017

    The dollar Thursday extended its recovery as weekly jobless claims unexpectedly fell.

    The dollar index was up 0.25% at 09:15 ET at 100.31.

    The dollar index had earlier dipped below 100 as Trump said the U.S. unit was getting too strong. He also called for interest rates to remain low, which pushed Treasury yields lower.

    The dollar also firmed against the yen and the euro.

    Jobless claims fell to 234,000 close to a 44-year low of 227,000 in February.

    Mas com a redução da taxa de juros brasileira, alguns investidores devem ir embora e o dólar deve subir um pouco.
