QCAM Insight

FX volatility rose briefly at the start of the Corona crisis and then normalized quickly. Central banks will try to keep it that way and market participants are unlikely to bet against them. Yet, currency trends can change without a rise in volatility, while central banks may not succeed in keeping everything stable.
