UUP in Focus

Invesco DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund is the prime beneficiary of the rising dollar as it offers exposure against a basket of six world currencies. This is done by tracking the Deutsche Bank Long USD Currency Portfolio Index - Excess Return plus the interest income from the fund’s holdings of U.S. Treasury securities. In terms of holdings, Invesco DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund allocates nearly 57.6% in euro and 25.5% collectively in the Japanese yen and British pound. It charges 78 bsp in ananul fees (see: all the Currency ETFs here).

Why the Move?

The U.S. currency has been an area to watch lately given a hawkish Fed, which underscores a strengthening economy. A healthy economy is expected to pull in more capital into the country and lead to the appreciation of the U.S. dollar. Notably, a steep rise in inflation has pushed yields higher and fueled speculation that the Federal Reserve may raise interest rates sooner than expected to combat surging consumer prices.

More Gains Ahead?

Currently, UUP has a Zacks ETF Rank #2 (Buy) with a Medium risk outlook, suggesting continued outperformance in the months ahead. Further, Invesco DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund might remain strong given its weighted alpha of 6.18 and a 20-day volatility of 6.58%. As a result, there is definitely still some promise for investors who want to ride on this surging ETF a little further.
