We Will Get Negative Interest Rates And More QE

What caused the big rally in the U.S. Dollar was the belief that the QE and zero percent interest rates were successful that the Federal Reserve was going to end the program and it was the anticipation of the tightening, of the normalization of interest rates, of the shrinking of the Fed`s balance sheet, that was what built the rally in the U.S. Dollar. But that was false.

As people figure out that they cannot normalize interest rates, they cannot shrink the balance sheet. In fact their balance sheet is going to grow again and not only are they not going to normalize interest rates, they are going to bring them back to zero. In fact this time zero is not going to be low enough. They will go negative. We will get negative interest rates and QE.
