This global recovery is an exception to the 'sell USD' pattern - BofA
Bank of America believes the dollar has room to run
Bank of America Global Research discusses the USD outlook and maintains a core bullish view through year-end.
"The US economy is set to outperform by an historically-wide margin in 2021 and 2022, making this global recovery an exception to the "sell USD" pattern. We expect supportive capital flows - particularly direct investment - into USD on the back of wide growth and interest rate differentials," BofA notes.
"We expect USD appreciation concentrated
against lower-beta FX, in particular EUR, where we see policy
normalization as being compromised. We are constructive commodity currencies experiencing large terms-of-trade gain," BofA adds.
