  • The battered dollar’s long-term fortunes are unlikely to improve regardless of who wins Tuesday’s U.S. presidential election, investors and analysts said. Despite its recent bounce against a basket of currencies, the dollar index (=USD) is still down about 9% from its March highs and on track for its worst year since 2017, weighed down by expectations that U.S. rates will remain near historic lows for years to come. Many market participants believe that a victory by Joe Biden - currently the front-runner in polls - and a potential Democratic sweep would likely weigh on the U.S. currency further, as the former vice president is expected to open the door to policies that investors view as dollar-negative, including robust fiscal stimulus. Four more years of a Donald Trump presidency may offer a less-clear path for the dollar. Although a continuation of Trump’s belligerent approach toward China would likely boost the dollar’s allure as a haven asset, those gains may be outweighed by factors such as continued negative U.S. real yields, analysts said. Here are some of the main factors expected to influence the dollar over the long term. For years, comparatively high U.S. interest rates relative to other developed countries supported the dollar by making it more attractive to investors seeking yield. Real, or inflation-adjusted, yields on U.S. 10-year Treasuries plunged below zero in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic. That has diminished the dollar's attractiveness and fueled rallies in everything from stocks to gold. While that short position reflects the negative sentiment swirling around the dollar, it could also fuel gains if a change in the narrative forced investors to unwind those bets all at once. The uncertainty surrounding a contested election could be one such event. Some analysts believe a Trump win or divided government - which could result in a smaller or delayed fiscal stimulus package - may be another. Trump has railed against a strong dollar throughout most of his term, complaining that it gives other nations an unfair competitive advantage in trade. Although the accelerated fiscal spending expected in a potential Biden presidency may weigh on the dollar, some believe the Democrat’s less confrontational approach to foreign policy may bolster the dollar’s appeal as a reserve currency.
