With the election just weeks away, this strategist has ideas about where a President Romney would take the dollar.
As predicted days before the event, Governor Romney outshone President Obama in Wednesday's presidential debate. Andrew Busch, global currency and public policy strategist at BMO Capital Markets , has taken a look at what a President Romney would mean for the U.S. currency.
In the near term, Busch says, a Romney win would be dollar negative.
The stock market rose the day after the debate, he notes, and Busch argues that it's because in his view, Romney's proposals are better for the markets.
"When you saw Romney pull ahead and do so well last night, we had a strong reaction with risk on, buying the stocks and selling of the U.S. dollar in the short term," Busch told CNBC's Scott Wapner.
In the medium term, however, Busch thinks a Romney presidency would mean a higher dollar, since the country would have less risk of debt and deficits.
