The US dollar lost over 5% against the Canadian dollar and euro on Friday? Boggles the mind. The right wingers think that the government will call a bank holiday and devalue the US dollar as happened during the big depression. No need of doing that because the dollar has been floating for 40 years and will automatically devalue itself. The money traders are not as stupid as our politicians. Or maybe our owners were much smarter 40 years ago to take the dollar out of the hands of the politicians and give it to their international banks. Point is, looks like one can't go wrong in the long run shorting the dollar. Problem is, "In the long run we are all dead," Sir Maynard Keynes. The grandkids will have a much tougher row to hoe.
