A Cut-Rate Planet

What's the trade as global interest rates fall and the dollar gains strength?

I think Europe is coming around and will soon follow America’s approach to the economy, says Karen Finerman. It seems likely to me the UK will cut interest rates.

If there is a cut, I want to be short the pound which can be done by shorting the CurrencyShares British Pound Ster .

I’d rather be long the dollar, says Jeff Macke. Europe has a tortured relationship with inflation.
