Outlook 2020: is the dollar heading for a secular decline ?
Investment Solutions - FX Strategy

Dear investors,

Please find below the November 2019 issue of FX Monthly.

Key highlights:

  • A normalisation in US-China trade disputes and a modest pickup in global trade are both prerequisites and central to USD weakness in 2020
  • Under this (base-case scenario), we expect the overvalued USD to adjust lower and EURUSD to be supported by valuations as well as some improvement in global trade
  • Sterling should continue to benefit as the disorderly Brexit premium is priced out
  • The Swiss franc is likely to weaken modestly while the Japanese yen may trade weaker in the near term but eventually regain its ground against the softer USD
  • Finally, in China we expect the normalisation of global trade, together with a recovery in emerging market growth, to underpin the CNY.
