Understanding Current Economic Conditions & Positioning For The Rest Of 2019

How is that possible? As history has shown us, global economic uncertainty leads to global investors shifting their money to safer U.S. assets which drives up the value of the dollar since dollars are needed (think supply vs demand) to purchase these assets. This is depicted by the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY), which tracks the strength of the dollar against a basket of major currencies. The dollar has held its strength and reamined near the peak its 52-week high. U.S. Dollar Index goes up when the U.S. dollar gains “strength” (value), compared to other currencies. In particular, it has gained 7% against the Euro since it began its ascent last April, and nearly 10% against the Chinese Yuan over the same period.

We at Dynamic Capital choose the latter, as do many of this nation’s CEOs surveyed by the Business Roundtable CEO Economic Outlook Survey. Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Chairman of Business Roundtable said, “The BRT CEO survey shows that confidence among America’s business leaders remains strong.”

G20 Finance Heads Renounce Currency Devaluation

From time to time, governments consider it beneficial to have a weaker currency to increase exports as products will become cheaper for the receiving country allowing them to purchase more. However, such a tactic sets competing businesses in the home countries at a disadvantage, thus many economists and world leaders frown on the financial maneuver as it is seen as an attempt by the exporting country to gain an unfair advantage over the competition in the receiving country.
