The dollar is trading a little below levels seen in late North American session yesterday, but that is after it initially extended its gains in Asia. The news stream is light, and unlike yesterday, there is no US economic data outside of the MBA’s mortgage [...]

I believe the next 7-year cycle, from 2015 to 2021, will bring a crisis of “biblical proportions”, much worse than the 2008 crisis, that might resemble the ‘30s Great Depression even more but, this time around, with massive devaluation of the dollar and other paper [...]
