Old Bucky

While it is common thought these days that the dollar is a horrible, no good, worthless relic looking at a quick chart shows an interesting development.

It does appear that old Bucky has been in an important uptrend completing higher lows since March of 2008. That is almost 3 years. We do not pretend to predict the future, and have no way of knowing if this will continue, but it could!   Also notice that it appears to sit on important support right now, that if broken, could put the 3 year up trend in jeopardy.  - I will take the dollar for 100 Alex!
