Blog readers are very knowledgeable about the powerful Hurst cycle within the US dollar. This blog has been blowing the US dollar bull trumpet for a good six months. The last two months of 2011 has seen short covering of the US dollar on the back of a weak euro. However there a many out there that do not believe the US dollar will gain strength. Please consider this.

USA QE3 not a done deal in early 2012, consider

Europe mess just wont stop

Asia, not in the news yet, but could be

So at the moment we have the pendulum swing away from US dollar bears to the bulls. And no one in the US government wants sound money, even though Timothy Geithner said they have a strong dollar policy.


US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner vowed Tuesday that the United States would never follow a strategy to weaken the US dollar..."Our policy has been and will always be, as long as I will be in office, that a strong dollar is in the interest of the country," Geithner said at a New York conference organized by the Council of Foreign Relations.

"We will never embrace a strategy to weaken the dollar."

A strong US dollar does not support a RISK ON trade. Hence commodities and stocks will not do well in 2012. Sure there will be great swings, and this will be great for trading, but new highs will be unlikely. Much loved trades like gold (GLD) and the Aussie dollar (FXA) will trade sideways to down, so do not be too keen to jump in, as Elvis has left the building.
