USD to strengthen against most major currencies through the end of 2022 - Capital Economics

FXStreet reports that, having fallen back to near its post-pandemic lows, economists at Capital Economics don’t think that the decline in the U.S. dollar will continue. They explain why instead the dollar is expected to strengthen against most currencies over the next 12-18 months.

“We continue to think that the yields of government bonds will rise more in the US than elsewhere over the next few quarters and that this will push the dollar higher against most currencies.”

“We forecast a relatively uneven global economic recovery in which the US economy outperforms thanks to its significantly larger policy stimulus.”

“As for the outlook beyond 2022, our view is that the dollar will eventually give back its gains against most currencies, for two reasons. First, we expect yield gaps to shift in favour of the rest of the world as the global economic recovery evens out and other major economies start to catch up with the US. Second, we think the dollar is moderately overvalued, warranting a gradual decline over the medium-term.”
