    Why the Strong Dollar Won’t Pack the Same Profits Punch

    Strong U.S. Dollar-dxy-d1-alpari-limited11.png


    The euro shouldn’t be kicking around U.S. companies’ earnings any more.

    It caught fire on Thursday, jumping 1.8% against the dollar after the European Central Bank announced a fresh round of stimulus measures while playing down the potential for more rate cuts. That caught traders who had forecast a widening divergence between ECB and Federal Reserve policies off guard, making for a violent swing.

    For equity investors, however, what happened to the euro last week matters less than what happened to it about a year ago. That was when its sharp decline, which had started in mid-2014, finally abated. Indeed, as of Friday the euro was up 6.2% from a year earlier.

    The euro matters far more for U.S. multinationals than the overall economy. While the currency area counts for just 15% of U.S. exports, Commerce Department figures show that as of 2013 euro-area operations account for about 40% of the sales of majority-owned affiliates of U.S. multinationals abroad. Japan, by contrast, accounted for about 4% of those sales.

    The UNWTO World Tourism Barometer reports that international arrivals in the Americas increased by 4% in the first half of 2016, led by Central America and South America. Europe (+3%) showed mixed results, with solid growth in many destinations offset by weaker performance in others.

    “Tourism has proven to be one of the most resilient economic sectors worldwide,” said UNWTO Secretary-General, Taleb Rifai. “It is creating jobs for millions, at a time when providing perspectives for a better future to people of all regions is one of our biggest challenges. But tourism is also creating bonds among people of all nations and backgrounds, bringing down stereotypes and ghting fear and distrust.”

    It doesn't matter if the US Dollar strong or not. If you're trading with unreliable broker, you will definitely loose your money in the end in any case as I lost mine when Exness broker has suddenly changed the margin requirements.

    In the present time, what we are actually experiencing? We observe that many countries are having internal conflict which is leading uncertain values of currencies. For this reason, traders need to keep their movements updated with the use of various analytical tools. However, USD is the major currency that is demanding in nature. And thanks for providing important signals on this currency as I am a major currency pair trader.

    US Dollar Outlook Bullish on FOMC as Virus-Induced Recession Risks Swell

    Overnight index swaps are not pricing in a rate cut at the upcoming FOMC meeting on April 29, though the subsequent press briefing and commentary therein may induce cross-asset volatility. The US Dollar may rise if Fed Chairman Jerome Powell paints a worrisome picture for global growth in light of the coronavirus pandemic as the central banks pumps trillions of dollars of liquidity into the financial system.

    At the time of writing, the Fed’s balance sheet stands over $6.6 trillion. In an attempt to calm inter-bank stress, monetary authorities also announced a temporary suspension on limits of uncollateralized intraday credit exchanges. However, the most controversial measure – arguably – that the Fed has done is agree to purchase junk-rated bonds as part of its broader asset-purchasing policy measure.

    A significant issue is transaction costs. When trading currencies with a Forex broker, you don't need to pay any commissions. In any case, the broker acquires money by applying a spread: the organization sells you a currency pair at a greater expense than it buys the currency pair from you. This implies you buy foreign currencies at a higher rate than you can sell them. This is known as the "spread", the difference between the bid and ask price. Low spreads mean higher benefits for you. Check and compare the spreads of different brokers for the currency pairs you need to exchange.
