  1. US Dollar and 10 Year Interest Rate:

    The US Dollar is rising dramatically on increasing interest rates. Can the US Dollar reach 104, the Covid high. While the US Dollar is losing buying Power, it still is the strongest FIAT currency. US Bonds are rising as a flight to safety trade. As a result, the 10Y Note Interest rate has dropped back to 2.75%. 30 year fixed rate mortgages are at a 4 year high between 5-6%. This is not good for Tech Stocks and Real Estate. Commodities prices on Gold, Silver, Oil and Wheat remain elevated. Long Term the US Dollar decline is still intact with Fiscal and Monetary stimulus flooding the world with US Dollars.
