I'd take the money and then invest it in something else that is undervalued right now.

Cash would be my choice - will put it for calculated returns.

Surely you mean "grow more robustly," not "anemically?"

The "huge bounce" in the USD has been going on since the end of QE2 at the end of June 2011. Since the end of QE2 the USD has moved up from 73 to 83 on the USD Index. That's a sweet gain of around 13.5% in just under a year.

How high can the USD move? Probably around the 88 level on the USD Index. Enormous resistance at the 88 level. Expect another 6% rally in USD before it turns around and resumes the long term down trend.

BTW, once QE3 arrives, all bets are off and the USD will immediately start its LT down trend.

QE3 will arrive even quicker as the Euro SHTF.


USD Index? That's like for every dollar you have you get 83 cents worth? :roflmao:

Yes I did meant anemically as some hawks such as Fisher won't allow another QE unless there's a fallback on GDP. Growing anemically (you can call it *flatlining* as well if you like) doesn't mean the economy is heading into a recession (by definition).

But then...hmmm...come to think of it...I wouldn't trust that baldy either.

And finally, "GDP growth" and 'robust' are now oxymoron in today's world (I wouldn't trust China's numbers).

Yeah like the next Apple before she desperately asked Steve back into bed :wink:
