This was evidently written before the USD started it slide in earnest today, and the pound followed. Relative to each other the pound has gained, yes but only because the downward curve of the dollar is steeper.

It is amazing the pound is so strong with interest rates so low. Look how high interest rates had to go last time to have the same effect! This is very encouraging and shows that rates are at or very near to their peak.

Yeah interest rates will have to fall at some point, because no one will buy our services, too expensive!!! However this is not good news at all. Interest rates are already low. So it looks as if the depression is on, as long as the dollar keeps falling and the pound keeps going up.

This will mean that the BOE will keep droping rates, just like in US. Poor old Benanke will have to drop money out of the sky! Ha hahahahahahahahaah. Oh well we all knew it was amatter of time, before the whole market went bang!
