The dollar may benefit forex traders in the short-term trade pan, but it might harm investors in the long-term trade strategy by trending and increasing inflation. The exciting fact since the last three weeks dollar has become a trendsetter and keep winning in the trade race.

Last Saturday was ideal for currency traders, is likely to mark a turnaround for the pound, but the longer-term outlook for the dollar remains uncertain.

Today, the US dollar index has favorable demand, consisting of six currency pairs, which grew by 0.10% to 92.17 due to massive currency trade in the forex market. Reported on a finance journal.

“A quick rebound in the US economy favors the currency in the coming weeks. However, in the second half of the year, it will possibly decline,” Commerzbank Chairman Helmut Gottschalk said in a press meet.

“As markets cautiously reassess the inflation forecast, the currency declines in value. In the pandemic dollar, showing strength in trade is a positive sign for the US market”. He added.

Another point-weakness for the dollar is whether the proposed increases in monetary injections from the Biden admin plan’s materialization initiative are implemented.

Gottschalk explained that ” It does not help to lift the US economy permanently… rather, it would only cause a short-term economic boom, which is vulnerable to short-term irrationality in the long term. Although the yield on the US Treasury increases, though, there would be room for the dollar to co-exist.”

Given that yields will likely go up in US Treasuries next week, there is a possibility of an increase in the US dollar, according to ING.
