Over the past forty years the United States dollar has experienced several boom-bust cycles spanning between 6 and 10 years. Both history and relative economic fundamentals suggest we may now be in the relatively early stages of the next great US dollar bull run. There have been two major upturns in the US dollar real exchange rate index since the early 1970s, starting in 1978 and 1995. Each spanned just over six years and produced 52% and 34% gains respectively. The real exchange rate last bottomed in mid-2011, and has lifted by around 8% over the past three years.
