The Dollar bottom is forecast to be a long way away according to most forecasters.
The most accurate dollar forecasters predict the world’s reserve currency will continue sliding even when the Federal Reserve begins to raise interest rates, which policy makers say is an “extended period” away.
Standard Chartered Plc, Aletti Gestielle SGR, HSBC Holdings Plc and Scotia Capital Inc. say the dollar will depreciate as much as 6.4 percent versus the euro. About $12 trillion of fiscal and monetary stimulus, the world’s lowest borrowing costs and a record $4 trillion of government bond sales between 2009 and 2010 will weigh on the currency, they said. So will the nation’s 10.2 percent unemployment rate and signs that the economic recovery may falter, they said.
and look at this statistic:
The Dollar Index has fallen 16 percent since March 5, a steeper drop than in any eight calendar months in 23 years.
Meanwhile, oil is way up also in part to a falling dollar.
Imagine what would happen if the U.S. dollar is no longer a reserve currency.
