A Prolonged Dollar Story

Vishnu Varathan, Head of Macroeconomics and FX Strategy Research, Mizuho Bank

A Prolonged Dollar Story

The US Equity markets have pulled back from their recent highs, raising questions over whether this is a return to more risk-averse behaviour on the part of investors. We speak to Vishnu Varathan, Head of Economics and Strategy at Mizuho Bank, on what he thinks of Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's recent comments, the signing of RCEP, as well as whether the strength of the Rupiah will play a role in Bank Indonesia's decision on whether to cut rates at its meeting today.

Produced by: Mike Gong
