The might of the USD and its position as the leading reserve currency has been called into question by numerous analysts over the years.

During periods of political and economic uncertainty doubts about the USD attract a wider audience, prompting further proclamations about its demise.

Some analysts claim a collapse is imminent, others predict that it is just a matter of time and yet it remains the most highly traded currency in forex, the dominant currency in international trading and remains the leading reserve currency.

It has history on its side and is clearly still trusted by its trading partners.

But the question of its future warrants consideration as it comes under threat from the EUR and other currencies who may be ready to challenge the USD as the dominant reserve currency.
