Tom Brakke on the Dollar-Stocks Correlation

The short version goes something like this: Sometimes the dollar is positively correlated with stocks (1995-2000), sometimes it’s not and sometimes the correlation is negative (like now)…

Tom Brakke‘s chart above is fantastic and a good reminder that the game is not quite so easy as to allow the same correlations to work all the time.

His explanation of how investors should be looking at this stuff is way better than mine so if you do anything today, get over to Research Puzzle and learn yourself a good lesson.
