I recently wrote clearly in favor of US Dollar strength—particularly against the Euro and other relative outperformers in 2013. My argument was based on incredible volatility across financial markets—particularly in US Treasuries, the S&P 500, and commodity prices.

On the forex side of things we see that one-sided retail trader sentiment mostly confirms calls for Dollar strength. The devil is always in the details, of course—the risk of a short-term US Dollar pullback is real. Yet I’ll look to buy USD declines (sell EURUSD bounces) via our sentiment-based trading strategies and our Momentum2/”Tidal Shift” system in particular.
