Weak Oil and Strong Dollar - A puzzling relationship | Economy - Marmore Blog

Weak Oil and Strong Dollar - A puzzling relationship | Economy - Marmore Blog | GCC MENA Research Analysis | Scoop.it

The relationship between oil price and dollar value is intriguing not only to the US and the oil-exporters, but to researchers and governments all over the world. Most commodities, including oil tend

Marmore MENA's insight:

Most commodities, including oil tend to be negatively correlated with the US dollar as most commodities are traded in dollar. The magnitude of the impact of dollar on oil and vice versa and its short term and long term impact on the economy provide interesting insights about the widely studied relationship between the most widely used currency and most widely used and traded commodity in the world.

Research literature has mostly found the causal relationship to be triggered by the changes in oil price on the US dollar. Few studies also indicate that a depreciating dollar may have positive impact on oil price.

 

As per an empirical study conducted by the Federal bank of New York, increasing oil prices lead to depreciating dollar both in the short and long run. Higher oil prices generate better revenue for the oil producing countries. Most of these countries were found recycling the petrodollars by investing back in the US, which led to the appreciation of US Dollar. The major oil exporting economies in the past 2 decades started to invest in instruments denominated in currencies other than dollar investments to protect them from shocks in the US economy and the risks of the US Dollar. The change in savings pattern of the oil exporting countries further added to the pressure on dollar.

Oil price has impacted the value of dollar differently in various instances in the past. The major oil shocks in the past and its impact on dollar provide interesting ideas about the puzzling relationship between the oil price and dollar value.

Marmore MENA's insight:

The GCC consumer market is composed of two distinct categories, the growing nationals and increasing expatriates (especially in UAE & Qatar).

Higher per capita income and younger demographic profile of the nationals has a positive implication for the demand of high value luxury goods and electronics goods while the working expatriate population supports the surging demand for consumer goods. Additionally, the regional governments have been emphasizing to improve their infrastructure to bring in an influx of tourist to their countries. In last few years, a number of grand malls and shopping complexes have opened across the GCC. With such positive developments and encouraging trends, the GCC retail industry is set to grow further in the near future.
