    Absolutely. I'll convert it to Flanian Pobble Beads so it won't lose too much of its value.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Not sure about the "Trump" affect on the dollar, the Euro currently looks undervalued with respect to both. Investors seem to be overestimating the possibility of Frexit and Italexit. Ain't going to happen.

    Trumpanomics can only work if dollar gets stronger.

    It's going to depend on the GOP's Border Adjusted Tax (BAT) plan vs. targeted import tariffs (Trump's preference). If they push through the BAT then, in theory, the USD will appreciate massively, by around 15-20% (i.e. about as much as the CT cut). At the same time, the markets are increasingly worried by Trump's rhetoric. He clearly hasn't calmed down, post election.

    The Euro looks over-valued to me, even against Sterling Sterling has a lot of negativity baked in at this point, so the upside is far greater than the downside, but there's clearly some downside in a WTO scenario (1.05-1.1 vs. USD IMO).
