$1.9 Trillion Stimulus Passed, Will The Dollar Keep Rising?

The US Dollar is back in vogue with the Bloomberg Dollar Index rising 1.24% since late February, but will this reverse with the expected debt raising to fund the $1.9 trillion stimulus package in the US? Vishnu Varathan of Mizuho Bank weighs in on this, as well as the ringgit depreciation, Singapore's STI, and whether he expects the treasury yield curve to continue to steepen.
