I can’t help remembering Bob Hoye’s constant refrain that when the global economy runs into trouble, the senior currency gets stronger. Why so? Bob reasons that debt is really a “dollar short” position. When the debt has to be repaid, everyone scrambles to sell assets and buy dollars to answer the call of margin clerks.

I been watching my mutual funds and I noticed

during most of this year the best performing fund was invested in foreign government bonds but in the last 2 months it has been falling, meanwhile the fund with the biggest gain in the last 2 months was invested in government securities. I guess due to the dollar rally?
