The year 2023 coming to an end will be the worst year for the US dollar since the coronavirus pandemic began in 2020. Bloomberg added that this trend could continue as the US stock market expects interest rates to fall. Fed: This will reduce the attractiveness of the currency.

In 2023, the US currency index, calculated by the agency, fell by almost 3%. This is the worst result and the biggest decline since 2020.

As the agency explains, this reduces the attractiveness of the main reserve currency. This is because other countries’ central banks may continue to tighten monetary policy and keep their rates high longer than the Fed.
