On 21 January, Donald Trump was inaugurated as the president of the US. Though Trump has been lauded as the most ‘business focused’ president, this has not hitherto materialised in definite fiscal policies. As such, there has been a climate of uncertainty amongst Forex traders and this has materialised in a sense, since January 21st, that the dollar may be at risk.
Why might the dollar be at risk?
The uncertainty about the Trump administration’s fiscal policy has led some traders to worry that this could destabilise the dollar. Often all that it takes is a lack of confidence in the dollar for it to start to fall as traders turn to other markets and currencies as securer forms of investment.
