Dollar spikes then falls

Take a look at the dollar chart, it spikes up then falls straight back down. I wonder what that was all about.

I have to be honest

I get a little scared thinking about how bad it could get.

Nowonder: Bernanke keeps eye on sliding dollar?? Dumb!

Bernanke: Fed will keep eye on sliding dollar
Bernanke: Fed will keep eye on sliding dollar, but pledges anew to hold rates at record-lows

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Monday said the central bank will keep a close eye on the sliding U.S. dollar even as he pledged anew to keep interest rates at record-lows to nurture the economic recovery.

In remarks to the Economic Club of New York, Bernanke engaged in a delicate dance.

He made clear Fed policymakers will keep rates at super-low levels. Yet through his words, Bernanke is also trying to bolster confidence in the dollar without actually raising rates, a move that could short-circuit the fragile recovery.

Economists say a free-fall in the value of the dollar is remote but can't be entirely dismissed.
