    USD rocking....Please give your theories/reasons why and is the ride over anytime soon?

  2. the US is self-sustaining and self-sufficient, they call the shots.
    Whatever they need they produce, whoever they wanna screw they screw.
    The dollar is a bully.
  3. It is similar to people buying stocks of a company where they trust the CEO. Long USD is the way to go for few years. There was an article in Bloomberg few months ago that showed that the value of a dollar is positively co-related to the popularity of the president.

    If you paid any attention to Obama's address, then the next direction for the markets is down.
    This being the case, market money is being sidelined and the dollar rises.
  5. LOL, popularity of President is related to how well the economy is doing. Dollar is positively correlated to economy, so therefore a good economy makes a popular president, not the other way around.

    How can O be a popular Pres, when he has yet to finish lunch and start work.
  7. The dollar has been down since Bush took office, does that mean that the economy has been terrible all these years?
