  • USD Peaking?

After a subdued start to the week following yesterday’s US holiday, the USD is softer across the board this morning, dipping below the 104 as the Euro bounces back from the 1.05 handle, while GBP breaches 1.23. Now while the USD will benefit from safe-haven flows, with equities beginning to stabilise there is a risk that the USD can continue to drift lower as factors that have underpinned the greenback are beginning to ease.

Following last week’s surprise hike from the SNB, I believe we are starting to shift from monetary policy divergence, which had been a supportive factor for the US Dollar to monetary policy convergence. Aside from the SNB, the ECB will raise rates from next month, while also looking to announce an anti-fragmentation tool. Elsewhere, the RBA, RBNZ and BoC have moved aggressively, meanwhile, the Bank of England have signaled their willingness to act more forcefully (despite their tepid action). The view of monetary policy covergence weighing on the greenback would be even more apparent if the BoJ broke away from its ultra-loose policy and while we aren’t there yet, Japanese Officials have signaled their unease at the rapid depreciation in the Japanese Yen.

    • Yesterday, the market was divided, so I stayed out. Today, I predicted that there would be a relief rally on DAX (Germany) 40 in the morning. Therefore, I went long at the cash open and made 170 points. Did anyone else have a similar experience?
    • I've always found the idea of combining Web3 and real estate intriguing. Now, with Parcl Protocol from Parcl Labs, that curiosity is becoming tangible. This platform offers a new approach to investing in real estate prices from cities like Miami Beach and New York, using current price data. What makes Parcl unique is its emphasis on decentralized real estate trading. It enables the buying and selling of real estate assets anytime, anywhere, through a decentralized exchange.If you are holding PRCL their native token you can  participate in governing the Protocol. Plus, there are perks like Perpetual Network Incentives, offering extra benefits to users. The numbers tell an impressive story: Parcl Protocol is a notable DeFi app in the Solana ecosystem, with over $180M+ locked in. In a short span, it has facilitated trades of over 2.1M square feet of real estate exposure, equivalent to 1,400+ properties.The total traded volume? A significant $940M+.with tokens listing on exchanges like Bitget, the platform's reach and potential only continue to grow, Could Parcl be a game-changer in real estate? (Edited)
