United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts
2018 has been a good year for the dollar; certainly much better than 2017, in which the world’s reserve currency lost 10 percent of its value on a trade-weighted basis. Entering the third week of November 2018, the dollar stood nearly 5 percent higher than its level on January 1st. The dollar benefitted in the month leading up to this report from Brexit uncertainty in Europe and from a collapse in the oil market, which saw its value rise against petro-currencies.
Seasonality becomes an important supporting factor for the dollar approaching year-end, and especially in November. Since 2010, the dollar has averaged trade-weighted gains of 1.8 percent in November and 0.2 percent in December.
In September, Citibank said of the dollar’s 6-12-month outlook that 3-4 percent upside was likely, followed by an 11 percent loss in the long term. It predicted EUR/USD climbing as high as $1.30, from levels in the high $1.13s at the time of writing.
Like Citi, ING remain long-term bearish on the dollar. ING isn't ruling out interventions and jawboning from Washington aimed at weakening the dollar. President Trump clearly would like a far weaker currency.
J.P. Morgan said in November that the dollar would be worth slightly more in the first half of 2019, before weakening slightly in the second half of the year.
Bitcoin (BTC) - Market news and forecasts
The cryptocurrency market exploded last year but has come crashing down in 2018. By November 20th, bitcoin was worth only $4,303 — nearly 80 percent lower than last December’s peak of $19,890.
Even with prices as low as this, the bitcoin consensus among analysts at the time of this report was becoming increasingly bearish.
“I don’t think we’re going to see the investment in bitcoin that everybody is looking for; I think it goes much further [down] from here,” said experienced trader Pete Najarian.
In October, UK-based Juniper Research argued that massive bitcoin losses this year in what should be extremely favourable conditions (a time of trade wars, a strong dollar and when government-backed currencies are weighed down by political concerns) bode poorly for the industry’s future.
Former White House Senior Economist Nouriel Roubini argued in November that bitcoin would be destroyed by the emergence of national central bank-backed digital currencies which, if/when introduced, would “immediately displace cryptocurrencies." In Roubini's opinion, bitcoin and its peers are “not scalable, cheap, secure or actually decentralized.”
