but the major trend remains toward a weak US$ and until such time as it

is clear that the 50, 100 and even the 200 day moving averages for the dollar are turning higher… and clearly they are not… we have to view every period of strength in the dollar as ephemeral in nature and an opportunity to sell it rather than to be a buyer.


The only… and indeed the major… problem with that stance is that far too many
others believe the same thing, having been conditioned to do so by the dollar’s long, protracted slide over the course of the past several years, through both the Bush and the Obama Administration, and most notably since the inauguration of Mr. Obama that ended a short, violent but pleasant period of pro-American and pro-US dollar feelings.
