If there has been one thorn in the side of the global economy, it has to be the U.S dollar.
As the recession took hold and the world went haywire, investors plowed heavily into the safety of the U.S. dollar. The problem is, a strong dollar isn’t exactly great for the rest of the world. In fact, it’s a major hindrance to a variety of asset classes and regions.
But heading into the new year, trends are emerging that will keep the lid on the dollar and its strength will be well contained.
That’s wonderful news for investors looking to expand their portfolio globally and take advantage of the growing world economy. All in all, the greenback will matter less when it comes to influencing returns.
