Gold too has been rising, as it often does in Dollar weakness, although the correlation is breaking down somewhat. This though can be a sign that the markets see a lot of risk in the current system.
Also the British Pound Sterling has recovered some of its weight in the world in recent months, today it is at $1.65 to the Pound. Way of the 2-1 ratio of pre-credit crunch, but a long way up from its lows of $1.35 of earlier this year.
As currency movements go in cycles though, this may prove to be a low for the US Dollar, which could well rally until nearly Christmas. This means a worse exchange rate for the Pound if you are looking to travel or invest abroad.
Worse of course is that the Bank of England is intent on printing more money to cover our government's profligate spending, which means the Pound will sink even lower. My guess is that it will re-test the lows of earlier this year and fall below parity with the Euro next year at some point.
