Key Takeaways

  • The euro resumed its slide after the second-quarter bounce, as the European Central Bank’s dovish Strategy Review contrasted with a more proactive monetary stance from the U.S. Federal Reserve.
  • Dollar strength was reflected in most emerging market currencies edging lower, but some support was provided by buoyant commodity prices and monetary tightening in some economies.
