Trade-Weighted Dollar

Trade-Weighted Dollar
A representation of the foreign currency price of the U.S. dollar or the export value of the U.S. dollar.

When this index increases, the value of the dollar increases, making it easier for Americans to afford imports. However, an increase in the index also makes American exports more expensive in other countries.
