October 03, 2008
A cry can be heard in the canyons of Wall Street and the winding roads of the City: “Capitalism is over.

Joining them was a cackle from the UN session, where many of the broadsides against …

The first leg of the dollar’s recovery appears to be ending. The dramatic trend of the past several weeks is likely to morph into more of a range trading affair, even if it takes time for such a range to become clear. We can anticipate a stream of fundamental news that will also temper some of the recent enthusiasm for the greenback.
