The dollar is up on end of year closing of positions and the realization that everyone else has to print as much as we do. I suspect you want to be long gold going into the last week of this year. I have yet to see anything that convinces me gold is not going to 2000-5000 an ounce.
You don't even know how much money we printed. TARP was just a finger tip. The Fed is out there actively buying up all the crap home mortgages and all the commercial mortgages to keep the banks from taking losses on them. In for a dime, in for 400 trillion.
