We rapidly seem to be heading for parity (again) for the Canadian and US dollars.... this is good if we are investing alot in equipment and imported tools... but if we are selling US$ based commodities, it will be tougher...

today we are less than 1.03 to 1....

who wants to guess a date and time that we reach Parity.......I am going to guess 2pm on Thursday Nov 12 TH

December 5th 11:30 AM - if the Eastern Seaboard gets a cold snap. Otherwise not until 2010.
Any thoughts on the US dollar? versus other currencies? US dollar index charts below.

Within a week, now that i have booked and prepaid my flights and accomodations to a US convention in feb '10.....;)
Now that we are at 99.8 cents - it seems parity is inevitable. Thanks to the lack of a cold snap on the Eastern seaboard, parity has been delayed. So much for a basis rally.
While there is a short term concern about various dimensions with $US parity, I question the long term stability of the $US.

The 'derivative bubble' has been "flat-lined" and on life support for the last year..... so it just begs the question when will the plug be pulled and the $US dollar collapses.?

Nov. 9, 2010?

Pig outlook: Early signs of lean hog futures market bottom, US & Canada swine industries experiencing losses

Lean hog futures price action this week may be forming a potential “V” bottom reversal on the daily price chart. Still, with summer-month contracts back at premiums to the cash index the cash market must strengthen to build sustained buyer interest in futures. The latest official quote for the CME lean hog index is $80.08. Recent wholesale pork price strength is encouraging the bulls amid a likely increase in US consumer demand for pork during the grilling season. The seasonal wholesale pork price strength has historically persisted into mid-July. It’s probable that the cash hog and futures markets have put in seasonal price bottoms and that prices will work sideways to higher in the coming weeks.
