    Quarterly Outlook: The 1970s all over again

    Steen Jakobsen
    The direction of the US dollar is the key question for 2017 because a currency that is up 20% over the past year will trigger a reaction, and the incoming Trump administration can be expected to jettison the more than 20-year-old dogma that a strong dollar is in the US’ interest.

    High Yield Warning ... from my favorite TECH Indicator..

    The Trump-Mania seems to have peaked on growth and inflation - reality is still same as post the November election, hence high chance of reduction in growth balance of 2016 - I have initiated long recommendation from this level in 30Y which corresponds roughly to 153'09 in ZBZ6 Future.
    Safe travels
