    FX Viewpoint – Seasonality in September?

    IGM FX and Rates

    We've described September as a month of extremes previously. It is traditionally a special month in FX markets. Unlike many other months, what strikes us immediately about this one is that the USD tends to move broadly, with little middle ground.
