    • The dollar languished at three-month lows on Thursday after poor U.S. retail sales proved a huge disappointment to those expecting some sort of U.S. rebound from a weather-weakened Q1.
    • The key measure of sales was flat in April, adding to other disappointing data that could see the Fed postpone a rate hike and analysts downgrade their growth forecasts for the rest of the year.
    • The dollar index last traded down 0.4% at 93.39. It has now shed nearly 7% from a 12-year peak of 100.39 set in March.

    • Questioning the sustainability of the dollar (UUP, UDN) bull market and believing the greenback to be overvalued across the board, Research Affiliates' Michele Mazzoleni suggests now might not be a bad time for U.S. investors to take advantage by picking up relatively cheap overseas assets.
    • People are buying dollars, he says, in anticipation of higher U.S. rates, but they're no certainty, and some Fed officials are appear to be having misgivings about tightening policy too soon, in part due to the strong dollar.
    • As for valuation, the dollar is more than 10% above its long-run value as predicted by Purchasing Power Parity theory. That's fine if rates are on the rise, but maybe unsustainable if not.

    • Following a string of disappointing U.S. economic data, the dollar hovered near a one-week low against a basket of major currencies on Friday and was on track for its biggest weekly drop in a month.
    • The dollar index, which last traded at 97.86, set a one-week low of 97.282 on Thursday - down 1.8% so far this week.
    • If U.S. consumer inflation data due later today comes in soft, it could reinforce the view the Fed will delay a rate hike in June and add further pressure against the dollar.

    • The dollar (UUP, UDN) has slumped 3.8% vs. the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) over the past few weeks - likely a combination of profit-taking by those short euros and ideas the Fed will wait longer-than-expected before hiking rates. Among those maybe ringing the register is Ray Dalio's Bridgewater Associates - up a whopping 14% in Q1, partly thanks to a sizable short bet on the euro.
    • "The market is now pricing in a very subdued pace of the tightening cycle - we disagree," says ING's Petr Krpata. "We just see the latest correction as a perfect opportunity to get into the trade again."
    • ING was one of the first houses to forecast euro/dollar parity this year, and is sticking by its year-end forecast of $0.95.

    • "While the U.S. economy as a whole is not overly exposed to exports, many of our largest and most influential companies are,” says BlackRock CEO Larry Fink in the soon-to-be released forward to the company annual report. "We believe that this will lead to an erosion in confidence on the part of CEOs with the potential to slow both investment decisions and future growth in the U.S.”
    • His comments are especially noteworthy given his previous relatively optimistic view on the U.S. economy and stock market.
    • Commenting on Friday's weak jobs number, BlackRock's CIO for fixed-income Rick Rieder says the damage done to exporters from the strong greenback is already being felt.
    • The dollar (UUP -0.5%) is lower today, but up 25% in the nine months from last June to March.

    • U.S. equity-index futures dropped with the dollar on Thursday, the last trading day of the week for many markets before the Easter holiday season.
    • Despite many investors sitting on the sidelines prior to the weekend, markets are preparing for the monthly U.S. jobs report for clues on monetary policy.
    • The figures will follow yesterday's weaker-than-estimated data on hiring and manufacturing, which fueled speculation that the U.S. economy is slowing and bolstered the case for keeping interest-rates lower for longer.
    • U.S. stock index futures: Dow -0.3%; S&P -0.4%; Nasdaq -0.4%.
    • The U.S. Dollar Index -0.3% to 98.20.

    • A nice-sized rout in the overbought dollar following the unexpected Fed dovishness turns into something more after the bell, with the euro (NYSEARCA:FXE) flying all the way past $1.10 vs. just above $1.08 at 4 ET (prior to the Fed news, it was around $1.0650). In the last few minutes the common currency has returned to $1.0914.
    • The other major currencies also saw big post-4 ET moves, but not of the euro's magnitude.
    • The Dollar Bull ETF (NYSEARCA:UUP) is lower by 0.7% after hours, following a 2% dive in the day session.
