Will the US Dollar Make a Comeback in 2011?
DailyFX Analyst John Kicklighter feels a US Dollar rally is likely in 2011. â€śThe Euro-zone and the UK have been making efforts to stabilize their markets throughout 2010. However, the application of austerity measures to already weak members of the Euro-zone will likely push these economies deeper into recession, resulting in declines in both the Euro and British Pound, and boosting up the US dollar. Naturally, investors will seek liquidity; but they will also look for support. They will find it in the US dollarâ€ť said John Kicklighter, Senior Currency Strategist at DailyFX.com.
Do the Charts signal a US Dollar Rally?
DailyFX senior technical strategist, Jamie Saettele, agrees that the US Dollar will make a rally against certain pairs. He finds the best trading ideas the ones that arenâ€™t yet attached to a story. Looking at the charts for USD against AUD, NZD and JPY, Jamie sees evidence that suggests 2011 will be a year of reversals. Jamie says that,â€ťWhat performed best in 2010, will probably underperform in 2011.â€ť
