Dollar Stabilization & Stock/Gold Ratio

Dollar weakness getting too excessive, while the rising S&P500 / Gold ratio is nearing its peak.

Hi Ashraf,

I hope you're enjoying/ed Vegas and the show!
I was wondering if you saw the article in FT today titled US Dollar? It's in The Lex Column. Essentially the article says the USD is due for a correction because it's 12 percent below "fair-value" on a trade-weighted basis. It also cites some fundamentals about the US economy, interest rate differentials, and timing of recovery in US compared to other countries. Please share your thoughts if you have read the article. Thanks

ps - my computer no longer allows me to click on the [read more] link on your IMT's

Ho, GBPJPY is well known for its sharp fluctuations. CADJPY is a better short.

Rob, big GBPJPy rebound magnified by broad GBP bounce and overall JPY weakness eyeing resistance at 156.30 below which is a good short entry with stop at 156.60. CADJPY better play.

Hi Ashraf,

Great point! - with oil down and risk aversion up - CAD/JPY makes the most sense. I'm short GBP/JPY, do you have any targets? Also, I should jump in on the CAD/JPY short also. Any entry points and targets that you see as good for that pair? Thanks so much.

Ashraf,

This GBP/JPY is a MAD PIG! Can go up 200 pips easy from low 154 area!! No technical chart pattern at all.
