This week’s forecast:

Amid a high unemployment in the U.S., concerns about sour U.S.-China relations due to the two countries’ tit-for-tat closures of consulates were reflected in the KRW-USD rate and boosted the greenback slightly. Moreover, the increased volatility of growth-type stocks in the U.S. stock market weakened the Korean currency, as the variability influenced foreigners’ net-selling activity on the Korean stock markets.

Last week’s trend:

The Korean won-U.S. dollar (KRW-USD) exchange rate opened the week down, moving in line with the bearish U.S. dollar and the bullish yuan. The Korean currency continued to gain strength, as potential coronavirus vaccine candidates in the U.K. raised hopes for a vaccine and risk-on sentiment gained.

At mid-week, strong global risk-on sentiment as well as the strong Korean won continued, and at the end of the week, U.S.-China tensions over the closings of consulates strengthened risk-averse sentiment. The KRW-USD exchange rate closed the week up.
