We had a busy month for the global financial markets with plenty of elections and central bank activities to influence global asset and currency valuations. Although the U.S. dollar rallied strongly in the second half of the month, it remained within the trading ranges against the major currencies that have been in place over the last few months. Emerging market currencies traded higher on the month for the first time since earlier in the year.

The Fed’s “no hike” announcement on September 17th came as little surprise to most. Whether it was uncertainty and volatility in the financial markets in the weeks leading up to the Fed’s decision; global investors may increasingly bring their money home. Japanese traders will return to the Japanese yen, the Europeans to the Euro, the Brits to the UK pound, and many other countries will follow suit.
