U.S. Dollar Hits One-Year High

The U.S. Dollar Index is at a one year high as of Thursday morning, hitting slightly above the $95 mark.

Mike Santoli appeared on CNBC to discuss the Invesco DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund (UUP), which tracks the U.S. Dollar Index and has slightly over 57% of its portfolio allocated to EUR/USD, followed by the Japanese Yen (JPY) at 13.6%, and the British Bound (GBP) at 11.9%.

“It’s interesting because the dollar is rallying right now, it’s not some single news item that seems to be propelling it. Obviously growth differentials, U.S. growth looks better, Fed on a tightening path even if it’s not going to be all that aggressive… the trade stuff is hitting dollar against the Chinese currency, and arguably against the Euro too,” said Santoli.
