Doug Noland writes “Beyond the disconcerting commodities markets, this week was also notable for confirming potential market vulnerability to a rising dollar.  When the dollar catches a bid, risk assets generally feel the pressure – virtually tick for tick.  This week’s abrupt downturn in commodities prices hit the commodities currencies, providing impetus for a reversal in the dollar.  A less than hawkish ECB yesterday provided the dollar another push.  And today’s report that Greece may be contemplating leaving the eurozone further pressured the euro, in the process adding fuel to the dollar rally. As a seemingly long trading week comes to an end, it would be helpful to know how severely the commodities stung the hedge funds - and what the Greeks are up to.  The global “risk on” trade has suffered a meaningful crack – as the clock ticks down on QE2.”
