CHART OF THE DAY: When Will US Dollar Peak? - zdd1

When will the US Dollar (which is currently re-testing both 2-year and Global #Quad4 Cycle highs) peak? As Jim Rickards and I reviewed in a Real Conversation on Friday, Fed rate cuts don’t happen in a vacuum. The #CurrencyWar is a competition.

“The second biological lesson of history is that life is selection… inequality is not only natural and inborn, it grows with the complexity of civilization” (pg 21). Inequality is currently perpetuated by you and I being forced to chase centrally-planned (Fed) asset price reflation while the rest of America pays for that in cost of living terms.
