The FNM and FRE fiasco represents the final nail in the coffin to send the USD into virtual free-fall. This is all so unfortunate, but nonetheless the future path of the USD has been written in stone by these and similar actions. The fire-sale of derivatives by MER las week, too, signals that a systemic deleveraging of trillions of USD in assets is on the horizon.
Time to be very defensive, Fools... it's going to get tough from here. Maybe this is a good time to direct readers back to my December blog post.
Good luck to all!
