The Hated U.S. Dollar Might Rally

Currencies / US Dollar Nov 06, 2009 - 07:01 AM GMT

By: Graham_Summers


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFew essays I’ve ever written have drawn as much ire as the ones in which I propose that the US Dollar might rally. The US Dollar is indeed hated, so hated that people will hate you just for considering that it might rally.

Virtually every day I receive emails from people asking me about the coming massive US Dollar devaluation or when the Zimbabwe-esque hyperinflation will hit. What’s striking about this is that I receive more of these sorts of emails today (when the Dollar’s at 76 or so) than I did last summer when the Dollar hit a 30-year low of 72.

In fact, the Dollar is so hated that it recently broke a nine-month downtrend and virtually NO ONE noticed. I know you probably think I’m a jerk just for mentioning this. But you can see it for yourself:

Of course, this could simply be a “head fake” as the Dollar continues downward to test its 2008 lows. But I can’t help wondering if this recent move might be the start of something bigger: a potential Dollar rally that would catch 98% of the world off-guard (98% of investors are bearish on the greenback).

If you’ve been reading my essays from this week closely, you know that MOST of the stock market gains generated by the US markets have come from the Dollar losing value. Indeed, the US Dollar and the stock market have been trading at a near perfect inverse correlation for months now. Every day that stocks rise, the Dollar falls and vice-versa... Which is why I’ve noticed that the US Dollar broke its downtrend the EXACT same time that US stocks broke their uptrend.

The market gods are not without their sense of irony. And how ironic would it be for the US Dollar (the most hated investment in the world) to be the one asset that might be about to rally, crushing stocks and commodities (both of which have rallied hard largely due to Dollar debasement)?

The issue now is if the Dollar remains above its former downtrend line. If it does, then we may in fact be seeing the above scenario play out. I realize that it’s somewhat absurd for me to even suggest the Dollar might rally after all the bailouts and stimulus. But isn’t it odd that the Dollar today is actually HIGHER than it was in 2008 BEFORE the stimulus and bailout madness began? Shouldn’t the Dollar ALREADY have broken below its 2008 lows based on all the fiscal insanity going on?

Or is it possible, no matter how unexpected, that another financial Crisis is currently beginning to unfold… and the Dollar’s moves are a sign that the investors are already beginning to shift towards safe havens like they did in 2008?

I am not claiming this is the case. But the above charts indicate something very odd is going on with the Dollar in relation to stocks. I’ll be watching this development VERY closely going forward.

I highly suggest you do too. If the Dollar DOES rally, it’s going to catch EVERYONE by surprise. Stocks in particular will collapse staging a virtual repeat of 2008.

I’m already preparing investors for this eventuality with a FREE Special Report detailing THREE investments that should explode when stocks start finally collapse. While most investors are complacently drifting towards the next Crisis like lambs to the slaughter, my readers are already getting ready with my Financial Crisis “Round Two” Survival Kit.

The investments detailed within this report will not only protect your portfolio from the coming carnage, they’ll also show you enormous profits: they returned 12%, 42%, and 153% last time stocks collapsed.
