Don't do it...

The risk in shorting the dollar right now is very high. After being beat down relentlessly for the past two years, I believe it has bottomed and is ready to soar. It is the one thing that should do well over the next couple of years or so. Sell everything BUT the dollar, including gold and silver. A SHORT Gold ETF or a SHORT silver ETF would be a much better way to go. I have no opinion on the yuan as I don't watch it, but based only on your post (newbie investor who wants to short dollars and buy gold), it is probably a sell (no offense intended, but posts like yours are an anecdotal indicator of sorts).
