Currency Chaos

By -

This is going to be just a quick comment cleaner. Equities are nicely in the red for a change, with the ES down 9 as I’m typing this.


Apparently Trump’s comments that the dollar is too high has sent a bit of chaos into the world, and one dark spot for me is a very strong gold market. I’m not so sure I’m going to hold on to that DUST position anymore, but we’ll see.


The big surprise, just hours ago, is that Theresa May announced that for some reason the will of the British people was going to be subjected to a vote by both houses of Parliament, which might mean the entire BREXIT thing could turn out to be a non-event, thus the pound is soaring.


Lastly, as mentioned, the dollar is taking it on the chin, with particular weakness vis a vis the Japanese Yen.
