  1. yes, that’s the big question.

    my best guess is the trade gap is heading towards 0. I just don’t see who/what/where will replace the foreign desire to accumlate $US without the CB’s and monetary authorities buying anymore.

    That means the dollar trades at a level that corresponds to a much lower trade gap

    i expect the next rade gap report to be substantially lower- maybe down to the low 50 billion level, as the detail of the import component looks like a timing zig
