US Dollar No ‘Safe Haven’ In This Middle East Crisis

“I will break the pride of your power” (Leviticus 26:19)


During the current crises in the Middle East, some have noticed that the USA dollar is not benefiting like in the past:

Is The U.S. Dollar No Longer A Safe Haven?
iStockAnalyst – Feb 24, 2011

…since the protests and riots began in the Middle East over a month ago the U.S. Dollar Index has declined lower. This is very uncharacteristic of what we have seen over the past 10 years. Usually, when the U.S. Dollar Index declines the stock market indexes and most commodities will increase and rise in price. However, that is not happening at this time.

Many investors believe that the U.S. Dollar is being forced lower by the Federal Reserve Bank as they continue to flood the market with cash reserves in order to create inflation. Essentially, they are diluting the U.S. Dollar on a daily basis.

Dollar Pressured by Mideast Turmoil
Wall Street Journal – Feb 24, 2011
“The dollar fell against most other major currencies as traders pared greenback positions in the wake of continued Middle East tumult and unfavorable yield differentials.

The safe-haven currencies of the Swiss franc and yen continue to be the most-direct beneficiaries of the latest Middle East civil eruption in Libya. The dollar was hovering above its new record low of 0.9240 franc reached in overnight Asian trading. The dollar was at three-week lows against the yen.”

So instead of being a ‘safe haven’, the USA dollar is partially being pushed down by the crises in the Middle East.  It is amazing how greatly increasing the debt and currency of the USA has finally gotten more of the world’s attention.

Of course, there still are other options that some investors are looking at:

Turmoil and oil fears push gold to seven-week high

Financial Times – Jack Farchy – ‎24 February 2011

The price of gold rose to its highest level in seven weeks as political turbulence in the Middle East…drove investors to the metal, a traditional beacon of safety…

Gold has risen 8.4 per cent since…January…

So while gold maintains its traditional place a as “beacon of safety”, the same is no longer true for the USA dollar.

People who have faith that the USA will continue should ask themselves why.

Prophecy moves forward–significant personal repentance is probably the only way out (as national repentance for the USA seems highly unlikely).
