Luke Gromen, founder and president of FFTT, joins Real Vision managing editor Ed Harrison to discuss why he believes the strength or weakness of the dollar cannot be left to market forces. Gromen argues that, if left to market forces, the sheer size of the U.S. Government deficit would crowd out global dollar markets, sending the dollar skyrocketing with devastating consequences for global markets. Paired with recent rhetoric from Janet Yellen about not seeking a weak dollar has shaken Gromen’s conviction in near-term dollar weakness and the subsequent knock-on effects. Gromen and Harrison will also discuss Gromen’s views on the Treasury market and why he thinks rates will be allowed to rise until something cracks.
