Last Chance for the Dollar to Rally


 -- Published: Sunday, 23 July 2017 | Print  | Disqus 

By Gary Savage

I think we need to focus on what is happening to the dollar. The intermediate cycle is now 63 weeks long. Clearly that isnít normal. Iíve maintained for several years that the end game was going to play out in the currency markets. There has to be consequences to printing trillions and trillions of currency units , and leaving interest rates at 0 for 8 years. I donít think the consequences are going to be deflation. I think the end game will be inflation, just like it was in the 70ís, and just like it was in 2007 and 2008.

Itís taken a while to manifest as other countries have jumped into the game and turned on their printing presses as well, so the collapse in the currency Iíve been looking for has taken quite a while to unfold. The first leg down ended in 2008.

The dollar rally out of the 2014 3 YCL has fooled everyone into thinking the dollar is strong and the euro is going to collapse. So everyone is now on the wrong side of the market. Thatís pretty much how every bear market starts with everyone on the wrong side of the boat.

In 2000 everyone thought tech stocks would continue to rise to the moon.

In 2006 everyone was convinced that we were running out of available land, and that real estate prices would continue to rise indefinitely.

In 2008 it was peak oil and calls for $250.

Now in 2017 itís the notion that the dollar is the prettiest pig in the pen. Iím going to go on record and say the dollar is not the prettiest pig. On the contrary I think the currency crisis Iíve been expecting is going to manifest first in the dollar. And as it does we are going to experience an inflationary shock. First in stocks, and maybe real estate, and later in the commodity markets.

When the dollar failed to rally and instead sliced right through the 38% Fib this week that was a warning bell that something is wrong. The theory now is that the 200 week moving average will turn price back up. But Iím starting to wonder if it will. During the last two bear markets the 200 offered no support at all, and price sliced through those levels like a hot knife through butter.

Ever since the world embarked on this crazy QE experiment weíve seen markets do things theyíve never done before. Trends last much longer than normal. Cycle rhythms have evolved and stretched in many cases to two or three times normal, and sentiment has to reach much deeper or higher extremes before trends reverse.

Take a look at the bear moves in the yen and euro as a perfect example. The bear moves occurred as almost a straight line down. Virtually no bear market rallies. I wonder if the same thing is happening to the dollar.

Next week is going to be important. The FOMC meeting, and the 200 WMA are the last support zone, and last potential event trigger to stop the collapse in the dollar. If these fail then Iíd say itís Katie bar the door time. The dollar is going into the abyss.

From the minute QE 1 began this was inevitable, but it has taken a long time to play out, with a very convincing bull market in the middle to get everyone on the wrong side of the fence and make traders believe that ďthis time is differentĒ. Itís never different. It wasnít different in the 70ís when we printed too much money to pay for the Vietnam war. It wasnít different in 2007 & 2008 when the Fed kept interest rates too low, too long to pull us out of the tech bubble crash, and I maintain itís not going to be different this time either. There is going to be a penalty for keeping rates at 0 for 8 years and printing trillions of dollars.

Folks there is no free lunch. Weíve had one heck of a party since 2009. If you think there isnít going to be a hang over at some point, and a price to pay, Iíd say you are going to be sadly mistaken.

Iím going to cover how I think this will affect the stock market, commodities, and gold going forward in the weekend report.
