moe we are currently in a dollar bull market which will last at least 6 months months. risk taking and qe have moved dollar down for now but dollar will regain much strength into 2010 but not against all currencies. the dollar will regain against its greatest losers since 2000.

Moe, I think it depends how fast things will unfold during Q4. A fast move is usually followed by a fast retracement but a slower move usually continues over a longer period of time. In my opinion it could continue to Q2 of 2010. The reason I am saying this is because the world economy can not pick up as fast as anticipated. The stimulus money is used up and a consumer driven economy will take time. The next wave of foreclosures in the USA is what I am afraid of. This is my prediction and it could be different from most of the predictions.

Spec / Houram

Although I don't believe on dollar strength, but I have to agree with you that the dollar has only one way to go which is u and as mentioned by Houram after the earning season is finished, but the question is how long will a dollar rally last???

I agree with spec that the Dollar will move up, the maximum time I give the USD to decline is 3-4 weeks when the earnings season is pretty much over. May be it will turn around next week, who knows, but the only way is up since almost everybody is already short dollar.

chloe, prechter thinks USD will start rallying about now. again, he has been wrong in 2003 and 2005 but spectacularly accurate in 2009 about stocks.

US WILL NOT and CANNOT raise fed funds by 25 bps. although fedfunds target is at 0.25%, the REAL FED FUNDS RATE IS NOW AT ABOUT - 3%. yes minus. theyre now startingt to reduce liquidity via very small reverse repos.

DOLLAR WILL NOT SHOW ANY DECENT REBOUND UNLESS STOCKS COME DOWN.. at least for now.

Mondo. yes. but for now we could see 92

My top long term shorts against USD

1 - CHF
2 - CAD
3 - NZD
4 - AUD

You should make a tidy profit in the longer term. If i had the above physical currencies i would buy dollars pretty much now as dollar is bottoming. Do not be fooled!

Also recommend depending or risk tollerance and margin to have a long term position as above for around 6 - 12 months.
