The US dollar is down today but has been on a bull run since the beginning of 2013. It remains in bullish formation and continues to drive down commodity prices. This is a positive catalyst for our consumption theory, in which consumption-oriented US stocks reap the benefits of Americans consuming more products.
With oil, corn, wheat and other commodity prices having fallen in price considerably from their late 2012 highs, consumers will come to find that they are spending less money when they go to fill up their cars at the pump and cheaper groceries when they are shopping. All in all, this will drive them to buy more with the increased purchasing power they now have through this form of passive saving. Strong Dollar = Strong America. Remember that.
