  The Fed has cut the Fed funds rate to near zero to bolster the economy during the coronavirus pandemic. With the introduction of a trillion-dollar coronavirus relief bill, the DXY has lost over 6% in 2020.

  “We forecast another 5-10% dollar decline through 2021 as the Fed allows the US economy to run hot,” ING chief economist Carsten Brzeski said.

  Moreover, the growth gap between the US and other regions worldwide will continue to grow, which will weigh on the greenback.
