The forecast indicates that the US dollar dominance is here to stay and local currencies will only weaken this year. The Pound Sterling, Chinese Yuan, Japanese Yen, and Indian Rupee have all fallen to new lows in 2024. The USD spiked despite growing threats of de-dollarization from developing countries across the globe.

“This opens some policy divergence in our baseline outlook, which leans in the direction of a ‘stronger for longer’ U.S. Dollar,” said a Goldman Sachs analyst. “Importantly for FX, the rate cuts we anticipate are unlikely to be significantly negative for the Dollar because they are unlikely to erode the Dollar’s position as a relatively high carry, safe-haven currency with strong capital return prospects,” read the report.

The investment bank forecasted that the US dollar would remain on top until the Presidential elections in November. However, the markets might take a new course depending on the outcome of the elections. Both the candidates have proposed different fiscal support and trade restrictions that could change the direction of the US dollar.
