I'm Scared

Dollar Falls to 26-Year Low Against Sterling

TOKYO, July 18 (Reuters) - The dollar slid to a 26-year low against sterling on Wednesday due to worries about the U.S. subprime mortgage sector and after British inflation data boosted expectations for higher interest rates there.
Sterling rose as high as $2.0492 , getting a boost after data on Tuesday showed that the annual core consumer price index in Britain rose to a decade-high 2.0 percent in June.


Dollar hitting new lows against the Sterling is just one more notch in the dollar decline. Are we due for a short term rally soon? I don't know, but long term dollar fundamentals stink and I expect the dollar will trade much lower than it is now.
