Add the President of the World Bank, Robert Zoellick to the calls over the past few days of a desire for a strong dollar as he is saying the US “can and should have a strong dollar.” The dollar has been benefiting for the past two days from the vocal support given to the US dollar following its recent leg lower. It will ultimately be action from the Fed and the US government that will ultimately determine the direction of the dollar rather than the hollow words of support. Jawboning though is always the easiest technique in the FX world to try to influence the direction of currencies.
