Good Times for the Greenback - October 2014

The US dollar looks set for a lengthy stretch of continued exchange market strength, notwithstanding this Country’s economic problems, the Federal Reserve’s still super-loose monetary policy, and the gargantuan mountain of American debt. There are several reasons for this.

One has to do with daunting geopolitical risks around the globe, from the mess in Libya, the seemingly never-ending confrontation between Israel and the Palestinians, and the growing likelihood of Iran emerging soon as a nuclear power, to the barbaric and spreading Islamic State run by ISIL in Iraq and Syria, the aggressive stance of Russia in Ukraine, and the increasing assertiveness of Beijing in the East and South China Seas. The tremors create uncertainties that make investors nervous. The US dollar then tends to come to the fore as one of the safest currencies to hold.

It is also the world’s preeminent monetary unit for trade and storage of value, a position in which it is not seriously challenged by any other currency.
