The USD currency rate has been a highly discussed topic during the recent year, due to the continuously increasing value partly as a result of a higher economic growth and decreasing unemployment. However, several upcoming macro events, as the upcoming midterm election, rate hikes and protectionist campaign, could have a negative impact on the U.S. Dollar. Furthermore, the possible strengthening in the Euro currency would affect the U.S. Dollar Spot Index negatively. Therefore, a suggestion is to take a short position in the U.S dollar Spot Index.
