|Thanks in part to mounting US deficits and a weak US economy, the US dollar continues to trend lower. After all, a virtual collapse of the banking sector does have its consequences. For some perspective, today's chart illustrates the current trend in the US dollar (blue line) as well as that other world currency, gold (gray line). As today's chart illustrates, the performance of the US dollar has varied inversely to that of gold since the latter stages of the credit bubble. It is worth noting that the US dollar is currently testing resistance of its downtrend (red line) while gold makes record highs.Notes:
