This is the video recording of the January 2019 Conference Call.
In the final Chart of the Week for 2018, we looked at the US Dollar reaching a key upside objective and then rolling over to finish the year on a sour note. I started out my Q1 2019 Playbook emphasizing the importance of the US Dollar Index in 2019 and I think we’re already seeing the implications of a weaker Dollar.
