“The yield on US 10-year bonds is still important. The FX / US yield correlation It has become more significant over the last month, which is somewhat surprising given that the 10-year US yield has traded in a tight range. But our analysis through G10 FX with 10-year US yields based on daily percentage changes over a 30-day period shows that each FX pair is more strongly correlated than a month ago. “

“The strongest correlation is still USD / JPY, while GBP and CAD show the weakest correlations. With the UK-specific support factor compelling in our view, we expect the correlation to remain weak. If 10-year US yields are set to rise, the different correlations, if they hold, point to a potential downside in EUR / GBP. The “additional substantial progress” needed for the FOMC to alter the pace of buying has certainly been made after today’s jobs report pointing to downside risks to 10-year yields leaving the dollar vulnerable to the downside. “
