    It’s all about the dollar, which I have hated all year (click here for my call ). The assured onslaught of federal debt issuance headed our way will be the overriding investment consideration for traders and portfolio managers for the next decade. That will knock the stuffing out of the greenback against every currency except the Zimbabwean dollar, and even that will rally when you get a regime change. There was once an argument that foreigners piled into these currencies to capture a huge yield pickup, but even that advantage is now gone. The soggy buck also explains a lot of what is going on in our stock market, with companies earning most of their from increasingly wealthy foreigners, like those in technology, energy, and commodities. As I write this, I am looking at new one year highs for my favorite picks of the former British crown colony currencies of the Canadian (up 14% YTD), Australian (up 26% YTD), and New Zealand (up 23% YTD) dollars (for my C$ report click here ). There bounteous resources, Anglo-Saxon contract law, an almost common language, and vibrant ports make them the safe bet of choice. It’s just a matter of time before the loony hits parity, to be followed by the Aussie dollar, and then the kiwi.
