Having made inroads due to ascending concerns over Trump's ability to pass sweeping tax dips, the Asian currencies are supposed to generally hold their ground, as the survey of more than 50 foreign exchange experts revealed.
One of the best Asian performers, the Thai baht has soared almost 7% versus the greenback, while the Chinese Yuan, Korean won, Indian rupee, Malaysian ringgit, Taiwan and Singapore dollars have all gained more than 4%.
Meanwhile, the dollar index, assessing the greenback versus six crucial currencies, has slumped nearly 8% in 2017.
