  1. A lot of value plays are dependent on rising commodity prices. And commodity prices are dependent on the US dollar, which I expect to trade lower over the coming year(s) — although, I’m still looking for that tradeable bounce!

A big part of my dollar bear thesis is the end of Core Domination and a reversion in capital flows from the highly crowded US equity market, back out to the periphery. The chart below shows that US stocks are near an all-time record high as a share of the MSCI global index.

Stay safe out there and keep your head on a swivel.
