The US DOLLAR INDEX has collapsed, falling past the 81.50 level down, down, down to 80.62 at the low today, now at 80.843. The December 2005 low was 80.39. The 40 year bottom of the range is 80, with one or two spikes as low as 78. Those Nice Government Men who keep so busy manipulating markets, especially the dollar, had best start paying attention. If the buck breaks 80.39, there's not much telling what would happen. Of course, about now, when everybody is short & bearish on the buck, would be a perfect time for them to enter the market & through their shills begin buying and buying from the Bottomless Pocket. If the NGM manage to tip off a rally, it could last six to twelve months and carry as high as 92.50 before it runs out of hot air. O, o, should silver & gold fear a rallying dollar? Maybe -- like an Abrams tank fears the flu virus.
STOCKS bounced today like a dead cat. Yesterday they fell on rising volume. If the Dow doesn't clear 13690 - 13,700 soon, it begins to look like a triple top. The DOW IN GOLD DOLLARS climbed a bit today, to G$425.07. The DIGS has dropped down out of an up-pointing wedge, which spells "breakdown." However, a below-G$415 close is needed to confirm.
