AUD now lower than parity with USD (so much for that China roaring....more like roaring 20s before the you-know-what).
Could this be another rinse, lather, and repeat (QE)?
Come on Fisher....do you magic....force the bald head to scrap more QEs which don't do shit except to bankrupt savers.

The USD is getting stronger but the economy is only sputtering along while debt climbs. Even with QE3 I would expect the USD to get stronger not weaker though, as flight to safety continues. The interesting thing about QE1 and QE2 is that most of the money did not actually make it into the real world, it just propped up balance sheets or boosted stock and asset values. There does seem to be a direct correlation between QE and stock indices but not with currency valuation.
The Taiwan NTD is getting stronger relative to many other Western currencies, but it has a limitation due to its export oriented economy. The Franc was devalued overnight to keep a type of parity with the Euro.
The only thing I can recommend is diversification, but I would stay away from certain currencies for sure, primarily the Euro and the Aussie dollar!
