The dollar may appreciate 5 to 10 percent against the euro in the “near term,” according to Marc Faber, publisher of the Gloom Boom & Doom newsletter.

“Sentiment on the U.S. dollar was really extremely negative over the last three months,” Hong Kong-based Faber said. “The other currencies are not much better. The dollar will appreciate against the euro by another 5 to 10 percent, and later on we’ll have to see, but that would be a near-term target.”

The dollar has gained 4.2 percent to $1.4405 per euro this month, and was poised to end a five-month losing streak, on signs the U.S. economic recovery is gaining momentum.
