Tyler Durden's picture


The Russian Ruble has weakened almost 1% today, pressing above 36 against the USD and nearing all-time record weakness. The Hrynia is collapsing. The Turkish Lira is re-collapsing and the EUR is having its worst day in over a month as safe-haven flows flood back to the USD following various headlines from the Russia-Ukraine border.

Since the headlines started from Russia, the USD has been bid...


With its best day in a month..

What do you mean, "the EUR is having its worst day"? The aim of the game is to weaken your currency, right? The EUR is too strong, it's hurting the European export industry, right? I've read it someplace, so it must be true. Hence, the EUR is having its best day in over a month!

Whenever there is talk of US military cuts there is an escalation of conflicts elsewhere. Serving a useful purpose.

Yes, they've effectively killed the gold/silver safe haven thing.  Mission accomplished.  I hope they are long term successful just like the last mission accomplished jackass.

Heh.  No they haven't.  They are scared shitless of the coming 1980 pop x10 as Russians roll into Eastern Europe instead of Afghanistan.  They were not ready yet.

I"m sorry! Barely staying @80 in spot futues does not a strong Dollar make! However, if you want me to make you really unhappy. We'll see the dollar on the middle 70's soon! Cause; YOU DO HAVE A POINT! If it's not running to the middle 80's now with this news. It's going down!

Scared money rushing back into The US Dollar because foreigners have confidence in our military super power when war is on the brink around the world. Peanut dividends for our Trillion dollar a year Military Industrial Complex I guess.
