The October 22nd release of Windows 7 should push PC sales higher because many corporate people have been putting off buying PC's with the memory eating and disaster Vista program. So they are waiting for Windows 7 to start buying new PC's.

Retail people may also be doing the same thing from what I am hearing so semiconductor companies are getting ready for a ramp up in sales.

For those that don't know, this index was over 3,000 in the year of 2,000 so its still over 66% below its historic high and has a long climb ahead. So imagine how high USD goes with it following this index back towards 3,000 with a 2x bull on the index.

Mark this post USD is at $29.67 check in 3 months and see where its at.
