Urgent: The US dollar is rising, pushing the Federal Reserve... and the rise continues to higher levels
Today the US dollar is hitting new highs, the strongest in 20 years.

At 13:42 GMT, the index recorded 110.220, and the major currencies fell against it, led by the euro , which is facing a strong energy crisis and recession fears. Gold also gave up its morning gains and retreated.


The Fed has not only raised the interest rate by 225 points since March until now, and it is expected to raise it by 75 basis points on September 22, but it has reduced its easing programs that depended on buying Treasuries and mortgage-backed bonds, and to buy these bonds, the Fed was printing dollars strongly. It also financed some central banks around the world that suffered from stifling reserve crises at the beginning of the Corona crisis 2020.
However, with monetary tightening, the supply of US dollars is declining.

When everyone feels pain

The US dollar is the reserve currency on an international level, and most countries issue their debts in the form of bonds and pay the services of these obligations through the hard currency (dollars) they obtain from global trade and exchange movements.
With global debt rising to $300 trillion, global economies slowing, and the United States no longer supporting the US dollar supply, we are witnessing a violent rise in the US Dollar Index .

safe haven

Everyone considers the dollar a safe haven from global turmoil, and while the flow of funds and stock markets decreases, the dollar index is witnessing a strong push from financial institutions and investors, especially in light of the high interest rate, and the withdrawal of investors from emerging risk markets that witnessed a violent exodus of foreign capital, ravaging the reserves From foreign exchange, and in local currencies, which fell to record levels, the decline in the face of the dollar.
And no other safe haven is as sparkling as the dollar, with gold falling since the beginning of the year to today, unable to rise in a higher interest rate environment, and rising US Treasury yields .

Technical Analysis

We see dollar support levels currently at: 109.257, 109.473, 109.606
Resistance: 110,038, 110,171, 110.387
