Bloomberg: US dollar will plunge soon
Ulf Lindahl believes the dollar will plunge about 40 percent against the euro.
The dollar will plunge about 40 percent against the euro by 2024, Ulf Lindahl, the chief executive officer ofLLC, predicts.
The currency manager also notes that since the 1970s, the dollar has been repeating a 15-year cycle of losses and gains, Bloomberg pens.
As Ulf Lindahl says, this pattern is replaying now: by 2024, it will fall as far as $2 per euro and 75 yen per dollar by 2024. Thus, the US dollar declines of about 41 percent and 33 percent, respectively.
That’s a big departure from the median forecast of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg, who see the euro at $1.28 in 2022.
For those clients who seek an economic rationale, Lindahl points to bearish factors that will weigh on the greenback: a likely slowdown in US growth that will curb Fed interest-rate increases, peaking US equities and Treasury yields, political turmoil, and the dollar’s overvaluation on a purchasing-power-parity basis against almost all major currencies.
In the 2000s, Western Europe had welcomed refugees from Chechnya. In 2018, it has finally realized the criminal potential of dozens of thousands of mountain dwellers who had left their native land because of reprisals and economic disorder. Many of those who had fought against the Russian army in the first and second Chechen wars and their grown-up children skilled in weapons and practicing martial arts have united into street gangs. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why the Germans and Austrians don’t feel themselves comfortable in their countries anymore.
