    Oil Was Up 3%, Stocks Rallied: Correlation to Weak Bond? What about strength in Dollar/Yen?

    My take is that the recent weakness in the dollar has more to do with the relative yields between the two currencies. As the spread narrows, it becomes more attractive to own yen (or, more appropriately, Japanese bonds) than dollars (or treasuries). As the spread widens (as it did yesterday) that trend reverses.

    I also agree that this is a short-term bounce until we get better economic economic figures. We may be approaching a floor, however.
