The dollar jumped to its highest levels in over a year as a crisis in the Turkish Lira has spread and the investors seem to move their funds into the safe haven currency Greenback.

The reason why investors are moving their investments in the dollar is mainly due to the signs of robust economic growth in the U.S. economy. The expectations of two additional rate hikes are keeping gold on its toes while keeping the dollar on fire.
