At the very least two factors are creating the shekel to weaken. Following the identified stance on combating inflation taken by US Federal Reserve chairperson Jerome Powell, anticipations have risen of a .5% hike in US curiosity premiums in May possibly, and of a equivalent hike in each of the pursuing conferences of the Federal Open Market place Committee, in June and July. The expectation of steep interest level rises in the US although rates in Israel increase much more slowly implies a widening desire charge hole amongst the greenback and the shekel, top to a mounting exchange price.

The other factor contributing to the weakening of the shekel this early morning is the latest falls in US stocks. The shekel-greenback trade charge is strongly correlated with the US inventory market, as a result of the hedging routines of Israel fiscal establishments exposed to that current market. When stocks fall in the US, the institutions have to buy bucks and market shekels to equilibrium their currency positions.
