Why is the dollar strengthening even after a stagnant/weakening American economy and excessive printing? What am I missing here?
Answer by Anonymous:
1) US ending its Quantitative Easing programme , which might lead to a decrease in supply of USD in currency market.
2) Chances of Interest rate hike by Fed in US which might lead to some of the investors pulling out from higher interest paying emerging markets to US.
PS: recently US economy data releases, such as Jobless claims and New Home Purchases have shown a positive trend for the economy.
