Not much to cheer about today:

Eurozone - unemployment at 10-year high of 9.7 percent in September.
CPI fell for the fifth consecutive month.

Japan - CPI fell 2.3 percent in the year to September.

U.S. - Household consumption dropped 0.5pc - the largest drop since December.
"Consumer spending, which normally accounts for more than two-thirds of US economic activity, had been bolstered by the popular car scrapped programe which ended in August."

...but don't worry, UK house prices will save the day.

Even if interest rates rise it will be a momentary factor causing exchange rates to rise. As long term it can only be its ability to export goods and services beyond its imports that will determine the value of the dollar.

Anything else is hear say fiction.

What possible change can take place within the global economy that can change trading patterns based on the last 20 years??? On the contrary with the development of Asian economies BRIC countries situ will deteriate coupled with energy, mineral and agricultural shortages.

Latin American countries at one point were using all export values to pay for interest payments on loans. Servicing debt can become all consuming... Bankruptcy and zero value of the dollar is not beyond a plausible outcome if corrective action is not taken soon.
