Stable U.S. Equity Markets Help Limit Dollar Gains
Overnight the Dollar climbed sharply higher as global
investors dumped stocks and commodities on concerns that Dubai Worldâ€™s debt
problems would escalate into a worldwide credit crisis similar to the one the U.S. faced when
Lehman Brothers collapsed in 2008. Fear raced through the global investment
community, making lower-yielding assets such as the Dollar and the Yen more
attractive.The situation in Dubai began to break late Wednesday night and spilled over
into Thursday while U.S.
markets were closed for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The U.S. Dollar gave back over 50% of its early morning
gains as investors took profits after a strong two-day rise.The inability to break equity markets lower
after the opening helped drive up demand for higher risk assets.Investors began selling the Dollar after it

The GBP USD fell sharply this morning after it was reported
that U.K. banks had exposure
debt.This weakness quickly dissipated
when the Royal Bank of Scotland
downplayed its risk exposure.The
British Pound found support at a 50% price level at 1.6293.Additional support came from two main bottoms

market mounted a strong recovery, as equity markets failed to follow-through to
The strong recovery in equity and crude oil prices helped to
boost the Canadian Dollar off of its low. The main trend in the USD CAD turned
up overnight, but the lack of follow-through to the upside indicates it was
most likely short-covering rather than new buying.
The AUD USD turned the main trend down after the hard
