Don't Be Fooled, The U.S. Dollar Index Will Be A Lot Stronger A Year From Now

Posted by Nicholas Santiago Tuesday, February 16, 2016, 11:15AM ET

As many traders and investors know, the U.S. Dollar Index (DX) broke out in September 2014. At that time, the U.S. Dollar Index was trading around the $83.00 level. Today, the U.S. Dollar Index is trading around $96.90 per contract. Just so that new readers understand the U.S. Dollar Index is a measure of the value of the United States dollar relative to a basket of six foreign currencies. These currencies include the Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound Sterling, Canadian Dollar, Swedish Krona, and the Swiss Franc. The Euro is the most heavily weighted currency again the U.S. Dollar in the index at 57.6%. That is why the U.S. Dollar Index chart and the EUR/USD (Euro vs U.S. Dollar) chart look inverse to each other.

Many people in the investing world worry that the strong U.S. Dollar Index will hurt global exports. Well, the truth is that they will hurt global exports for the United States. However, the strong U.S. Dollar index will help to keep commodity prices low. Just look at a chart of crude oil and you will see that it has plunged as the U.S. Dollar Index has strengthened. You see, most of the oil in the world is priced in dollars and in order to buy a barrel of oil you must use U.S. Dollars. So it is safe to say that the strong U.S. Dollar is the primary reason for the decline in crude.

Many people think that the U.S. Dollar Index is rallying higher since 2014 because it is a good currency, but that is not the case. The U.S. Dollar Index is rallying because other central banks around the world such as the European Central Bank, Bank of Japan, and the Peoples Bank of China are printing money in one form or another. This is causing investors abroad to flee other currencies and buy U.S. Dollars. This action by foreign investors is unlikely to change anytime soon. Now let me be clear, the U.S. Dollar Index is not going to surge higher in a straight line, that is not how markets operate. The trend in the U.S. Dollar Index should remain up despite having some pullbacks along the way. The current large pattern on the U.S. Dollar Index chart signals a move to the $105 level and possibly higher. Now a Federal Reserve interest rate cut could cause the U.S. Dollar Index to retreat, but it is likely that other central banks around the world would also print more money to counter that move. So either way, it is going to be difficult to find a reason at this point in time for sharp dollar decline. The bottom line, the U.S. Dollar Index should be a lot higher a year from now.

European Banks Have The Zika Virus

What is going on with the European bank stocks? As you may know, the leading European banks stocks are now trading below their 2009 lows. This is not a healthy sign for stock markets around the world. Leading financial stocks such as Deutsche Bank AG (NYSE:DB), Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE:CS), Banco Santander, S.A.(NYSE:SAN), and UBS Group AG (NYSE:UBS) are just a handful of stocks that remain under steady selling pressure nearly everyday. The talk of negative interest rates seems to add to the weakness in these stocks. Then the flattening yield curve is also something that is very negative for these stocks. The derivative markets are rarely talked about these days, but they are possibly the biggest problem with all of the global financial stocks.

These problems in the European bank stocks are now spilling over to the U.S. banks. Leading U.S. financial stocks have been plunging recently. Just look at a chart of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), Bank of America Corporation (NYSE:BAC), Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C), and Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) and you will see how quickly these stocks have fallen since December 2015. Despite the decline in the large bank stocks the Federal Reserve (U.S. central bank) continues to stand firm that the economy remains fairly strong. Has the Federal Reserve ever gotten a crisis correct?

This time around there are financial problems in China, Japan, and Europe. All of these enormous economies are printing money in one form or another. Yet, the major stock market indexes are all plunging lower. This problem is not going to be easily fixed by the central bankers anytime soon, so stay on guard as 2016 is going to be a very volatile year. Traders and investors should continue to watch the leading European financial stocks for clues to the future action in the markets.

This Is How New All Time Highs Could Easily Happen #NYSE #NASDAQ #S&P

Every analyst and their mother are screaming about a continued massive collapse in the stock market. The fear is palpable, it tastes like onion and garlic. Billions of Dollars are being pulled from hedge funds and mutual funds on a monthly basis. There is significant fear at every turn. While this is true, there is a small chance the market could surprise everyone and head to new all time highs. Let's look at what would have to happen to create this scenario?


1. Oil would need to head back to $50/barrel. This would alleviate major concerns over oil company debt. The move would need to happen quickly to avoid major defaults. The time frame would be in the next month. If oil shoots back up, the banking stocks would jump higher as investors stop worrying about how much exposure they have to the impending defaults.


2. Janet Yellen would need to give the pause signal for future rate hikes for the remainder of 2016. This may happen if the US stock markets continue to stay shaky and the global recession continues to worsen.


3. China infuses a massive stimulus package that starts seeing growth return. Any uptick in economic data in China will send the world markets soaring. In addition, it would add fuel to a commodity rally.


4. Investor sentiment gets so bearish, a short covering rally could be epic and cause the markets to retest and break the highs. Investors, realizing they are on the wrong side, jumping back on the buy side.


While intriguing to think about, the likelihood of these things happening in the near term of maybe 5%.
