Dollar not devalued? You?re delusional.

The British pound has been nearly as badly hit as the dollar in recent times yet, despite that, in January 2009, 1 GBP got you $1.442. Now it will return $1.64.

As for the Euro, in January 2009, 1 Euro got you $1.323. Now it will return $1.455.

That?s a 14% devaluation against the GBP and 10% against the Euro. Can you find me a major currency that it hasn?t been devalued against?

u keep coming across like those fools Obama keeps referring too. BTW where  came from - everyone is richer than where I am, the problem very well in the US is everyone who camehere maybe in scram mode, and that includes rich born in AMerica types. All ur bru haha points to only one thing, its very important for Asia and Europe to remove America from its mantle, sad I say that but starting phony wars financed by China, cash for clunkers, spend spend- b&tch b&tch I think its time for AMerica to call it a day. And u r the reason and people like me the victims of ur idiocy.

Hey gusswhat? We ae there now, no Saddam, and no US dollar. Mission Accomplished!! Why don't u make a Chevy Chase type movie blended with some drawl accent- "How to run a country down in 8 years".

That is not a devaluation and you know it. It is not even the all time lows of the dollar for that matter. The British pound for example has traded as high as I know of $2.062 against the dollar. So one could say the greenback has made a comeback eh?

Dollar replaces yen in carry trade.
 

THE USDOLLAR CARRY TRADE

Welcome a new carry trade to town! Here in the present, the new carry trade has begun to take root with the USDollar as its basis. Its requirements are simply stated. It needs a crippled bank system that offers a reliable 0% interest rate, a crippled currency that offers little risk of a rise in exchange rate, and plenty of targeted opportunities to invest in rising asset groups in competition. The gold asset is one such object asset. One is hard pressed to identify a sovereign bond security pitched by a government with any credibility. Their deficits, boatloads of bond issuance, and public statements in desire of weaker currencies tend to rule them out. So Govt Bonds are not a viable object. They are too busy ruining their currencies in the midst of the Competing Currency War. Why just two weeks ago, the Swiss Govt announced their frustration at a rising currency, despite all efforts to undermine their Franc currency. They will be forced to redouble their destructive efforts. The Europeans did NOT want to reduce interest rates a year ago, but they did, a correct Jackass forecast that went directly against some banker contacts. That shows the power of the Competing Currency War, since the Euro currency had risen to 160, sufficient to render considerable harm to the European Union Economy in its export trade. With numerous currencies ?frozen? from programmed destruction, the time is ripe for the USDollar Carry Trade to be launched. It has been launched. THIS CARRY TRADE WILL PUNISH THE USDOLLAR BADLY AS IT WEARS A BADGE OF SHAME!

The ruinous bursted bubble from Japan around 1990 and the seemingly endless years of 0% Japanese money enabled the Yen Carry Trade against a backdrop of a chronically insolvent Japanese bank system. A critical characteristic of that carry trade was that heavy leverage applied enormous pressure in a way so as to maintain the low Yen currency and the high US$ currency. In the summer 2008 when the USFed took the official interest down to 0.25% and stuck it there, the USDollar Carry Trade was assured of a vigorous run through the financial factories. Here is what is so important about its upcoming entrenchment. The US$ exchange rates will be heavily subdued, with any rebounds totally smothered, resulting in a relentless Gold rise with gusto. The shorting of the US$ is key for the supply of funds. It comes as borrowed US$ funds used outside the US Sphere, thus net bearish. It comes as leveraged instruments designed to capitalize on a continued US$ decline integrated into securities like with short DX contracts.

The coordinated and systematic ruin of major currencies, through monetizations, through vast federal deficits, through sustained near 0% official rates, and through chronically insolvent national bank systems, will assure that the Gold asset will be a favorite for the USDollar Carry Trade for at least a couple years, maybe more. Furthermore, installation of the USDollar Carry Trade will assure that No Exit Strategy will be available to the USFed also. Wall Street firms will participate in this free lunch carry trade, just like all others. Wall Street will not permit a USFed rate hike to firm the US$ exchange rate. Talk about a strong perverse factor behind the USDollar. This is every bit as powerful as the ?Beijing Gold Put? analyzed in the Hat Trick Letter issued in September.

Continued forces will be at work in a variety of ways to continue the thrust and duration of this new USDollar Carry Trade, sure to keep it badly subdued. The risk is so great that a USTreasury Bond default could even become the last stop on its pathogenesis pathway. Just today, the compromised erudite spokesman Lawrence Meyers actually said the USFed will probably remain on hold for its near 0% interest rate until the end of 2011. That is NOT a misprint!!! The USFed will justify its decision not to hike rates, not to halt money creation, all the while discussing theoretically an Exit Strategy. Try not to laugh too hard! Also, the US$ Swap Facilities are scheduled to end in October 2009. Their extension should be very harmful for the USDollar, from the bad publicity and the understood urgent implicit desperate need. The next wave of US bank losses will arrive to coincide with the falling of the leaves in autumn, an apt parallel. The inability of the USFed to conduct and execute any Exit Strategy at all is powerful impetus behind the development of the USDollar Carry Trade, and the powerful lift it gives the Gold price. They cannot raise interest rates. The Stimulus Bill has r

U read that previous article and now Japan wants US miltary out (I think the process has started) , thats great as I do not want to pay for global defense and then be the whipping boy, pont is when US leaves Japan and Germany my vision of the WW3 comes into play. Which is good I have to admit USA would benefit by a war, it still has the numero uno military. Well here is wishing for Pearl harbor again.

You think myself or anyone else cares what Chinas assesment of anything is? That's the same China that concluded after GW1 that the US failed to recognize the importance of our own helos in the war lol Yea right. That;s who I'm looking to for advice. The country of 1 bilion that can't build a fighter jet engine when the rest of us have been doing it for 60+ years. The country that can't actually develope anything more complex then a tonka toy on its own but has to steal everyone elses and call it *their own* lol The country that can't put a nuclear sub to sea without killing it's sailors when we been doing it for 60+ years. Yea, thats who I'm looking to take advice from.
 
As for weapons of mas destructions. I could care less if Saddam had them. I am on the stance that any of those 2 bit tin horn third world dirt pits that people like you came from can have all them they wish. We simply tell them if even so much as one is used against the US or its allies we will totally wipe their entire worthless nation off the planet and kill every living thing in it. I am certainly not for sending great young American heroes over to die for these wortless dirtbag 3rd world losers. Their entire worthless nation is not worth the life of my son or any other American. I never voted for Bush either btw.
 
Still waiting to here what 3rd world muslem dirt pit you came from? Since things are so bad here, I am sure you would do us all a favor and take your useless A** back then right? I mean why would any 3rd worlder like you that seems to think its all over here wish to stay here? If money is the problem, go to New York city. I hear they are buying one way tickets for you 3rd worlders to go back home. Just trying to do the right thing and help a 3rd worlder out ya know.
 
Guess you can babble some more nonsense when you are able to get to a *cafe* for some free internet Mr Sucessful  lol

An EU /Russian or even just an Germany/Russian military alliance does not seem improbable given the EUs, and Germany's in particular, dependence on Russian natural gas.  Merkel has only taken Putins c#ck out of her mouth long enough to speak out against NATO expansion  and other things the Russians object to.
