Two developments stand out on the markets. Firstly, the inflation rate priced into bond yields has not risen lately. The so-called break-even inflation rate for the USA in the 10-year maturity range is just under 1.7%. The development of this indicator gives an indication of the market expectations for the cyclical recovery.

Secondly, the US dollar is once again under pressure (DXY) against a basket of established currencies (EUR, JPY, GBP). A strengthening of the US dollar can be observed against emerging market currencies. With one important exception. The Chinese currency Renminbi was able to further strengthen versus the US dollar. A possible fundamental reason for the weakness of the US dollar is the disagreement between the Republicans and the Democrats about a further economic stimulus package.
