US Dollar Very Long Term Chart

Here is an update of the US Dollar (DX) Very Long Term chart last shown on 3 April 2009 when the Eurodollar Squeeze was still abating.

We do not see any reason to change the longer term targets based on what appears to be a confirmation of the continuing decline.

The reasons for this decline are obvious, but so many miss this that we have to wonder what people are thinking. Despite the credit writedowns and even a potential unwinding of the dollar carry trade which we think is a bit overblown, as the demand for dollars in bank lending is slack, most analysts are missing the bigger picture of a huge overhang of eurodollars that are becoming increasingly less useful to foreign holders, especially if the power of the petrodollar declines.

There is a potential double bottom to be made at 71, with a possible target in the higher 80′s based on the charts. The fundamental scenario we would see is a significant equity market dislocation and/or an exogenous geopolitical event that caused another artificial short term demand for dollars and the T bills. Currency dollars are, after all, sovereign debt of zero duration and in any panic there is a rush to the short end of the curve, to the point of accepting some negative rates of return for the safety of capital.

But after that event, the decline of the dollar will gain again in momentum lower unless there is a profound systemic reform and restructuring of the federal budget deficits. Even clever frauds can work only so many times, and there is nothing particularly clever or sophisticated about Wall Street’s latest antics, excepting of course their size and their audacity which the average mind cannot well grasp.
