Comments on: Chart of the day, Swiss franc edition http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/08/22/chart-of-the-day-swiss-franc-edition/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: FifthDecade http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/08/22/chart-of-the-day-swiss-franc-edition/comment-page-1/#comment-29907 Tue, 23 Aug 2011 00:09:23 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=9451#comment-29907 Interesting to note that while the Swiss Franc is high against the Euro, the Euro is still at the upper levels of historical values against the US Dollar. You need $1.44 to buy €1.00 today, but back in the days of the post launch “market test” of the Euro’s strength IIRC one Euro could only buy $0.87.

In global terms, aren’t they the only ones that really matter since they are the two world currencies fighting it out to be the World’s main Reserve Currency?

Until there is a real, unified effort by both parties in the U.S. and by the EU to create jobs, nothing much is going to change. How could it?
Meanwhile, instead of everyone scurrying into bomb shelters as they did in the 1950s and 60s, all the money is being sucked into “safe havens.”
There is money to be made, even though now the faint of heart will fade away from the gold market. But, personally, I think there I still a LOT of room at the top.
Been using this to keep steady – I am recommending this small, stellar primarily technical analysis company: http://tinyurl.com/3wvd2mz
Be sure to try the free subscription. It actually is free and they don’t bug you. Nothing to lose. I’m just saying, Gary Wagner of the Gold Forecast is shockingly accurate. It is truly uncanny.
