If there has been one constant for investors since the Great Recession and credit crisis, it has to be the U.S. dollar’s continued rise.
Seen as the safe haven since the credit crisis, the U.S. dollar has continued to see massive inflows and has strengthened against pretty much every currency under the sun. That’s caused plenty of headaches for several sectors and nations over the last nine years or so.
But lately, the dollar has been acting like the dollar of old – or at least the dollar circa 2006 to 2007 – and has been dropping like a stone.
The question is: Should we be worried about the dollar’s fall or is this the start of a return to normal worldwide growth?
