The market is completely bearish on the dollar. The market is also very pessimistic about the dollar’s outlook.

    Looks like the plunge protection team is out in full force this morning. Gold is currently at $1001, down from $1030 earlier after massive selling volumes since 8:00 am. However, I’m sure it will recover and go beyond $1030 soon enough.
