Currencies Outlook: U.S. Dollar (USD), Australian Dollar (AUD), Canadian Dollar (CAD)

If you take a look at some of the other currencies, the Canadian Dollar (CAD) is up 2.50 percent so far in 2017. The Australian Dollar (AUD) is up 4 percent so far in 2017. These are some pretty big moves early in the year.

Remember, everybody was bullish on the U.S. Dollar. That was the trade. It was so crowded, everybody was in it. Every strategist that I saw on financial news at the end of last year, early this year, said something like, "I am long the Dollar, short Canadian or short the Aussie, or short the Japanese Yen..."

Meanwhile all these currencies are going up and I think they will go a lot higher.
