    Default Pound kicks Dollar's arse

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7952319.stm

    The dollar has fallen against all major currencies after the US Federal Reserve announced a plan to buy $1.2tn (£843bn) of debt to boost its economy.

    The dollar fell by 2.7% against the euro and by 2.2% against the pound.

    The US currency also declined against the yen, the Norwegian krone, the Australian dollar and Brazilian real.

    The Fed's decision to buy debt means it is effectively creating new money, leading to concern from investors about the over-supply of dollars.

    Dollar rally ends

    The dollar traded at $1.428 against the pound, its lowest since late February.



    I see Gold is shooting up and so are commodities. FIAT currencies are becoming worthless as the major banks head for the printing presses. Fill yer wheelbarrows!

    Indeed. Apparently there's a few getting worried that the Swiss will vote in changes to their banks secrecy laws, so they're doing a runner.
    Insanity: repeating the same actions, but expecting different results.

    In an ideal world Mailman put his money where his mouth is, volunteered for the war in Iraq and is busy fighting the baddies.
    But more likely he got sacked from his role sorting mail in the mailroom.
