March 28th Daily Analysis


The US dollar index futures declined with the opening of the American session yesterday to drop to 102.618 levels. The decline comes in light of the Dow Jones index rising by more than 250 points, with the rise in banking sector stocks after the news of First Citizens Bank’s purchase of deposits of the Silicon Valley Bank, which collapsed two weeks ago. The acquisition came for $500 million, noting that the market value of Silicon Valley had exceeded $400 billion by the end of 2022. That is, the transaction was carried out at 90% less than the value of Silicon Valley.

The US dollar comes started to get weaker after the Fed’s comments from Neel Kashkari, President of the Federal Reserve in Minneapolis, who highlighted some uncertainty about the path of rate hikes and added that the US economy is now closer to recession than before.
