    Money is flowing into the safest asset class, US dollar. The dollar is king once again and it looks like – it gained Wednesday night once again for the second straight session.
    The gains have been against European forex. The euro is very weak but at this point in time, it is not about what to sell but what to buy and what people are buying is the US dollar.
    That is because it is seen as a hedge and is high yielding compared to other safe havens. So, money is going into the US dollar and that has implications for emerging market assets, commodities etc.
