"What it does necessarily mean is that the U.S. greenback would be on the defensive," said Bipan Rai, North American head of Fx approach at CIBC Money Markets in Toronto. "Unquestionably, remaining very long greenback has been a common placement for some time so investors would be seeking to distinct out those people positions."
