    Another step closer to devaluation of the banana currency.

    I don't think the huge spike is due tomorrow. I think, it will be long term gold price growth (inflation!). Any spike that is too good (bad?) to be true, should be traded. I started doing it back in 2005 and don't plan to stop anytime soon.

    Devaluation now looks inevitable. Even the Chinese are giving up on the dollar and exchanging for gold!

    China's quietly converting dollars to gold. Not if every American decides to exchange their dollar with gold or the Euro.

    Once China decides to support gold, and gold breaks $1000 convincingly, the dollar's finished, like it or not.

    Upon devaluation, interest rate has to rise, like it or not. The Fed has to shore up confidence in a currency crisis just as it did during the banking crisis.

    I have had two people at work mention the spike in gold prices to me. No specific mention of dollar devaluation though. The level of awareness hasn't reached that point yet. Both of these people have been putting up with my warnings for years, and one actually bought more Au on Oct. 1st without my prompting which I found noteworthy as it took all the persuasion I had to initiate her first puchase 18 months ago. Early majority, I think, is here.

    This crab is infested with Sacculina carcini, a kind of sea lice.

    Not only is that white blob the sexual organ of the parasite - not the crab, but this crab may well have once been a male:

    Or, more appropriate to the above:

    With respect -this observation while right in principle can once in a while be specious in practice.

    For two very long five and then six year periods (1980-1985 and 1995-2001) the USD went up about 50 percent, which in the staid world of international exchange rates are huge moves. To get too entrenched into a macro view on the USD's direction and stubbornly stick to that view in those anomalous periods can then actually prove to have been a stopped clock's posture, like the permanently dollar bearish Peter Schiff's.

    One point evidenced in the same chart you employ to illustrate your dollar bearish point below, is that on a couple of occasions, permabear insights about the dollar's long term trajectory have been interrupted by agonizingly wrong five and six year interludes to the contrary, and this is a good example of how rigorously correct macro economics can put you in dangerous opposition to an occasional market paradox.

    Something which fundamentally driven analysis is tempted to dismiss as irrelevant for instance, is "how long has the USD been descending uninterruptedly, to date"? In our present case, it's been trending hard-down for a long time already, since 2001 when the last multi-year uptrend ended.

    iTulip (elegantly) prefers the long term view on the dollar, which is most certainly the only rational course long term - the thesis that's overhwelmingly more popular here is that we must finally be at the cusp of a definitive unravelling. But these same charts you post to substantiate your bearish macro-point show the extent to which violent five year long reversals can make mincemeat of the most logical macro insight once in a while.

    Currencies can be affected by speculative as well as fundamental factors, in the short and even intermediate terms, when fundamentals go out the window for a little while (years)? You implicitly recognise this risk by adhering to the iTulip stance of keeping a large position in USD. Given one holds a large USD position "for balance", I would adjust my pronouncements to align them just a little more with that implied caution.

    I know. That's why I bought ko, intc, oil companies and mcd in the summer. Very on itulip but it was my anti dollar trade. If profits need to be turned into dollar they will look better.

    But not the only gov job program for the working poor

    3 weeks on, the dollar looks like it is about to collapse.
