Update on Currencies: Apr 28, 2022

The dollar index continues its tear, surpassing both its 2017 and 2020 highs this morning. This is consistent with our forecast [see: Apr 11 Update on Currencies] that the Fed would need help from a rising dollar to attack inflation without having to resort to sky-high interest rates that would further accelerate the growth of the country’s national debt.At 103.928, DXY hasn’t seen these levels since 2002 in the midst of the 54% dot com crash. While beneficial to the inflation outlook, the dollar’s strength hasn’t been very healthy for alternatives such as silver, which just reached our next downside target.continued for members
