United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

26-January-19: 2018 was a reasonable year for the dollar. Measured by the US Dollar Index, the greenback appreciated by 4 percent, which was much better than 2017’s 10 percent loss. It was, though, something of a stuttering end to 2018 and the dollar has had mixed fortunes in early 2019.

In December, after lifting US interest rates to 2.25-2.5 percent, the Fed lowered its expectations for future hikes due to so-called “cross currents” (China, Brexit, trade wars etc.). Skepticism among analysts over future Fed hikes has for some time been the main reason for dollar pessimism for 2019, but now, there is also the prospect of a US economic slowdown to contend with.

“A slowdown in the economy is likely to weigh on USD particularly in the second half of this year,” a CIBC researcher said in January.

Of the same opinion was an expert at ING, who argued that the dollar is soon to “embark on a gradual long-term bearish trend.”

January’s extended US government shutdown also has dollar-negative ramifications. Not only is the shutdown likely to hit first-quarter GDP growth, disagreements within Congress bode poorly for the future of potentially inflationary fiscal spending.

Bitcoin (BTC) - Market news and forecasts

2-Feb-2019: 2018 was the year that the bitcoin dream came crashing down. The bubble that many had suspected was building in 2017 was realised and bitcoin went on to lose roughly 80 percent of its value. Bitcoin ended 2018 at $3,800, and was even lower at $3,500 in early February 2019.

Obstacles to cryptocurrency success in 2018 included regulatory crackdowns, social media advertising bans and a debunking of the “store of value” myth. When all is said and done though, what matters is that bitcoin has failed to gain broad acceptance beyond a crowd of tech enthusiasts.

For 2019, pessimism prevailed at the time of writing, at least for the first half of the year, and more bad news for the crypto industry came in the form of the bankruptcy of Canada’s largest crypto exchange, QuadrigaCX.

In January, an LMAX Exchange analyst predicted “a continuation of weakness in the first half of the year,” which might see bitcoin fall below $2,000, before the market rallies into year-end to settle between $5,000 and $8,000.

An Investment Week expert said in February that bitcoin predictions were now “pointless.”
