Dollar is getting weaker and interest rates are dropping at the same time,how can that be?
Short term interest rates are a function of Fed OMO policy; a fiat (i.e. a product of domestic monetary policy). The exchange rate is a function of relative interest rates and trade flows (an interaction of policies of multiple nations). Not much reason they have to move in any particular relationship to each other.
Didn't Republican make fun of Obama and say that he had to keep interest rates low or his economy would have fallen apart?
So I've been hoping they will raise interest rates now that Trump is president but so far the same old shit
