Trump, the next 100 days: As good as it gets for the dollar?
After 100 days in office for President Trump, will this be as 'good as it gets' for the US dollar? That's the question ING's FX Strategist, Viraj Patel poses as we look ahead to what might happen next in the currency markets.
Viraj says a watered down policy regime and interest rates staying lower for longer may mean dollar gains we might have been expecting may not now materialize. He says investors are learning not to buy into policy rumours and a reliance on the facts is becoming paramount. It's all to play for, says Viraj, for the next 100 days.
