NOVOX International Financial Information

Credit Suisse said that in the next few years, as the Fed keeps interest rates close to zero, while the growth prospects of other regions improve, the attractiveness of the US dollar as a target currency for investors to carry out arbitrage transactions may decline. John Tai, Chief Investment Officer Woods said on Tuesday that we believe that there are fewer and fewer reasons to hold the US dollar for arbitrage purposes. It is likely that we will see the conversion from US dollar assets to other assets, including those in Asia that provide better growth and profit opportunities;

The dollar spot index has fallen by more than 6% since it hit a high in March, and Deutsche Bank’s G10 foreign exchange arbitrage basket index rose by double digits over the same period. From an indicator point of view, some Asian investors may have begun to reduce investment in the US dollar.
