    • A Trump victory would lead to a wave of risk aversion, and the U.S. dollar would strengthen on the potential of a repatriation tax, RBC strategists say.
    • “The broader USD weakness of recent days is not what we would expect to see if Trump were to win the presidency.”
    • Firm says reaction will be more muted if Clinton wins. If Trump is quick to concede, it would likely renew risk appetite as well as prompt modest USD strength on the near certainty of a Fed rate hike in Dec. An inconclusive result or messy transition would keep investors on sidelines for longer; clear winners in that scenario are JPY and the volatility trade.

    • The dollar is cruising to its third straight week of gains as stock and commodity markets show signs that they might be able to manage another U.S. interest rate hike in the coming months.
    • With risk appetite gradually returning following a bumpy few days, U.S. futures are edging back into the green.
    • "The question for traders now is whether this Fed rate hike issue is a 'risk-on' or a 'risk-off' situation," said Saxo Bank FX strategist John Hardy.

    • The dollar is stumbling again, succumbing to a bout of profit-taking as U.S. futures point to a fall of around a third of a percent on Wall Street.
    • The move comes after Goldman Sachs called the greenback's bottom (again), stating it "remains dollar bullish and thinks the trajectory is higher from here."
    • U.S. Dollar Index -0.2% to 94.05, easing back from Tuesday's two-week high of 94.15.

    • Speaking generally, Goldman for some time now has been more bullish on the economy than most, and thus seen a faster pace of rate hikes than most. As a result, the bank has tended to be long and wrong on the dollar.
    • At heart of today's bullish call on the greenback is the currency team's belief that markets are underestimating how fast monetary policy might tighten. Short-term rate markets have all but eliminated the chance of a rate hike in June, and are pricing in little more than a 50% chance of a move at any point in 2016.
    • Chief currency strategist Robin Brooks tells Bloomberg the market reaction on Friday was telling: In response to a weak jobs number, the dollar actually rose. In fact, the greenback has been bouncing nicely for all of May, but the move is just a blip on the sizable downtrend started last December around the time of the Fed's first, and so far only, rate hike this cycle.

    • A board selloff in the greenback (UUP -0.7%) has gold (GLD +2%) eyeing $1,300 per ounce for the first time since early 2015. Gold is currently up 2.5% to $1,298.
    • There was modest disappointment in some 2nd-tier economic reports this morning, but other than that no clear reason for the dollar decline. Particularly strong are the euro (FXE +0.9%), Swiss franc (FXF +0.8%), and yen (FXY +1.1%). The commodity currencies (FXC +0.1%), (FXA -0.1%) aren't doing a whole lot even as oil takes out $46 per barrel.
