A very large “gap up” here in the wee hours Sunday night before markets really kick off, and the U.S Dollar continues to surge higher against the E.U currencies.
One can’t imagine a single USD bear left on the planet.
Exactly as it should be…. before the thing tanks.
It’s amazing to me how public perception continues to view USD’s recent surge as “some indication” of a stronger U.S Economy.
How on Earth can The U.S Governement ( as well the crooks at The Fed – a private held bank ) handle the enormous contribution to the “serviceable debt load” ( remember The U.S is “officially broke”, with a continued rise in the “allowable debt ceiling” now just a given ) brought about by a stronger U.S Dollar?
It’s impossible. The Fed mandate is to “kill USD” at whatever costs, as to keep these balls in the air as long as they possibly can.
A strong U.S Dollar “kills” the U.S economy! As exports tank, and the amount/value of outstanding sovereign debt balloons “past” the balloon we already know to be.
Find me an “economist” who can make the arguement that “a strong U.S Dollar is good for America” and I’ll eat my hat.
A strong U.S Dollar represents everything the U.S Gov and The Federal Reserve fear most so….I encourage you to start looking for signs of reversal – as opposed to getting to excited.
Long the JPY right now.
Traders never come back to their desks in Sept. looking to fight the trend. Nasdaq 5000 here we come. Still too early to short stocks.
Who’s short stocks?
Again…it’s like you “kinda read” here but….not “really”.
Thanks you again for the brilliant insights.
