In the current political climate, do you think this will impact on the FX markets? Indeed, some will wonder about this question. But if you think about it, one can easily think of the political situations that have been plaguing the world.
The political upheavals, both domestically and internationally have even prompted some to wonder if the world will experience another world war. Yet, there are other questions as well such as what exactly do politics and central banks have to do with FX markets? And how will it affect them?
If one takes a look at how politics and central banks have been affecting the global economy, one will find that there has been no shortage of big surprises. Well, unless you are an economist or a financial professional, but certainly not a politician. Hence, one might think that these events could not be avoided.
Even though no one would want to see some big political world events disrupting the global economy, there is no denying that some disruptions are unavoidable. After all, the world is huge and has a lot of moving parts. But regardless of this, it is important to look at these events from a broader perspective to come to an understanding.
The biggest cause of political strife across the world is differences between different types of people. Hence, each country’s citizens have different views and perceptions about various issues. Moreover, while some countries have a more stable economic system, others are in a state of perpetual turmoil. All these have one thing in common – different beliefs and opinions, which are very closely tied to their economy.
In such a scenario, the political turmoil that has been evident across the world is something that will always exist. This is not something that can be avoided by any means. The reality is that it is inevitable. Hence, all one needs to do is to understand how they can help the situation along by joining hands with the global economy.
However, one cannot expect to automatically be able to have the best of both worlds by joining hands with both the sides in the battle for economic growth. Therefore, one has to be creative and innovative in order to get what he wants – stability and economic growth.
The first thing that one needs to realize is that politics and central banks do not make a significant impact on the real economy. While political unrest can be problematic, it cannot be considered to be as detrimental as the economic instability caused by various factors.
The examples here are some of the issues that come to mind when we are talking about the economy. For example, a political party in any country may lose power as a result of its mismanagement of the economy. And while the economy is at stake, the value of currency and assets, and hence, the FX markets will also be affected.
The international monetary system is the only way through which the economy can get out of such issues. Such systems are not without their problems as well, but they still manage to solve many of them. Therefore, a sustained attempt must be made to bridge these issues.
One can create a multi-trillion dollar portfolio of assets that are fully secured by the world’s only sovereign reserve currency, the US dollar. Thus, when these assets are all in one basket, it makes sense to find a way to guard them. To do this, one needs to find ways to protect the US dollar.
Not only do we need to think of political unrest in the context of instability in the economic system, but also think of the local consequences of political upheaval. This will help us come to a better understanding of how politics and the central bank’s impact on the FX markets. When thinking about these issues, it becomes clear that these are issues that need to be solved rather than ignored.
