Not much more needs to be said about the US Dollar than this headline. They managed to push it just barely above the support level ahead of the long holiday weekend but it certainly looks weak heading into next week. The problem is even though the "short Dollar" trade is crowded, there does not yet exist a fundamental reason to buy the Greenback.
That bodes poorly moving forward, oversold, crowded or extreme bearish sentiment notwithstanding.
"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat
Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput
