Any news between now and the French election next month that suggests fading risk of a Le Pen victory would probably be supportive of the euro.

Broadly the dollar continues to struggle after last week's Fed statement which sounded a less hawkish tone than some had expected. It still looks like bit of a positioning, maybe consolidation driven move, more than any meaningful deterioration in the dollar's longer-term outlook.

Yellen is trying to nudge the expectations for a rate hike in March higher. This doesn't mean they will move in March, but the Fed wants to have the option to move.

The dollar is benefiting from mounting political uncertainty ahead of a number of crucial elections in the euro zone and from buying by bargain-hunters, looking to pick up the greenback following its worst start to the year in 30 years.

The lack of focus in Mr. Trump's first press conference since winning the election fanned worries about the president-elect's willingness or ability to drive a pro-growth agenda once in office.

The wild card here is if Trump sounds a protectionist, anti-immigration, anti-strong dollar tone. And if we get that, there is substantial risk for the dollar.

We're seeing that play out right now and I suspect if you see a Trump win we'd be seeing a continuation of something like that.

It's more a continued move higher in the dollar on expectations that the Fed will indeed raise interest rates in December.

To the extent that Mrs. Clinton is seen as the status quo candidate, her victory is likely to create fewer policy uncertainties than Mr. Trump's and is therefore likely to create fewer possible objections to higher interest rates at the Fed come December's FOMC meeting.

It would be inflationary, and it would be the type of argument that would argue for higher rates from the Federal Reserve.

An orderly rise in oil prices would signal a broader sense of global market stability.

On one hand the Fed looks like it will raise rates in December ... and on the surface that's somewhat hawkish and positive for the dollar, but at the same time the Fed lowered its longer-term projected path of interest rates. It's hard to get too excited about the dollar when the Fed is lowering its projected path of rate hikes into the future.

Her comments still fall a little bit short of what dollar bulls would want to see in that she doesn't make a case for an immediate increase, still keeps the outlook data-dependent and then went on to talk a great deal about how the Fed plans to deal with future recessions.

As it stands now, market participants see a less than 50-50 chance of rates rising by December. The dollar will continue to struggle until that chance rises meaningfully.

The fact that she did remove that timeframe I think just suggests that June's off the table, July is possible if the data cooperates. She's a little bit more upbeat in that respect than the Street and I think that was a main takeaway for me.

The G7 ... did once again highlight the rift between U.S. and Japanese policymakers when it comes to currency interventions. The strong surplus number added to the yen's generally positive tone.

We're in a sweet spot of sorts with the data showing a more robust recovery, which supports stocks and the dollar, yet not quite strong enough to declare an end to quantitative easing.
