According to a message on Viber from Rizal Commercial Banking Corp.’s Chief Economist Michael L. Ricafort, the weakening peso can be attributed to the overall strength of the dollar.

According to Reuters, the US dollar index has retreated slightly from its recent peak of 106.21, which was the highest it has been in 10 months. This comes after a strong showing in the past quarter, attributed to the continuous hawkish stance of the US Federal Reserve and an increase in US Treasury yields.

The trader predicted that on Tuesday, the peso may continue to decrease in value because of potential indications of a more aggressive stance from US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell.

On Tuesday, the trader observes the peso fluctuating between P56.65 and P56.90 against the dollar, while Mr. Ricafort predicts a range of P56.65 to P56.85. This information was provided by AMCS with Reuters.
