MAJOR DXY RISK EVENTS

Today we received better than expected GDP data out of the euro zone (Euro has the largest weighting in the dollar index) which has had a limited effect on the EUR/USD pair and the index as markets adopt a wait and see approach ahead of tomorrow’s ECB rate decision. Friday we see inflation data out of the US which is unlikely to have a significant impact on DXY even if inflation prints lower or in line with expectations as Jerome Powell mentioned the Fed is not looking for nuanced inflation data as a reason to slow the current trajectory of rate hikes.

Into next week we have ZEW sentiment and US PPI data before the all important FOMC meeting and retail sales data. Markets and a number of FOMC members favor a 50 bps hike for June and July but retail sales will watched fairly closely after Walmart and Target issued warnings around the strength of the consumer in their respective Q1 earnings reports. In addition, both stores have mentioned growing inventory supplies as concern for future profitability as consumers tighten their belts amid rising inflation.

    • There has been a significant uptick in activity from institutional investors, or "whales," in the meme-inspired cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE). Recent data shows the value of large transactions has almost quadrupled in the past day. According to statistics from IntoTheBlock, transactions over $100,000 have soared in value over the last 24 hours, jumping from $1.53 billion to nearly $3.01 billion. Simultaneously, the amount of DOGE moved by these whales increased from 9.74 billion to 17.97 billion, indicating a substantial rise in investor activity within the Dogecoin ecosystem. This dramatic increase in whale transactions coincides with growing speculation within the crypto community about the possibility of a Dogecoin ETF being approved. Excitement surrounding the prospect of an Ethereum ETF has led to speculation that DOGE might be the next cryptocurrency to get its own ETF. Amid this speculation, a prominent crypto enthusiast named Vee posted on X, suggesting that Dogecoin would be perfect for an ETF due to its broad acceptance and non-security status. In a post highlighting the potential pros and cons, Vee underscored the double-edged nature of traditional financial institutions' interest in Dogecoin. Billy Markus, one of the coin's co-creators, humorously remarked that a Dogecoin ETF would be "amusing," a sentiment that fits DOGE's playful origins but doesn't detract from the serious investment opportunities current market trends present. Dogecoin value has risen by 11.2% over the last week, reflecting the overall upward trend in the cryptocurrency market. Although DOGE has seen a slight 0.7% increase in the last day, it is now trading at $0.168.
