    US dollar is up 1.58% against the Yen...

    as long as people do not have faith in their own currencies the dollar and treasuries will remain strong despite zero interest rate...simple as that. Investors have lost so much money and also fear their gov's devaluing further (like Russia and Argentina)their currencies they will invest here.

    However, as Kotlikoff says in his book, the RMB is a strong contender long term. China has a $2 Trillion surplus and strong economy and may in the near future settle thier international trades with ASEAN in RMB....at some point, maybe in Q3 2009 or later the dollar will budge down and inflation will set in as investors demand higher return on the treasuries for the substantial risk that usa will not be able to replay its massive debts...just some thoughts.
