Multi Currency Upgrade – Dollar Downgrade

by | Aug 8, 2011 | Archives

The recent Standard & Poor’s downgrade of US debt will push the US dollar down. 


When it comes to multi currency investing… as the photo above at Google shows we are number one.  So many readers have been asking me, “What does this downgrade mean?”

The downgrade and the recent stock market plunge create some special opportunity.

Every equity in my multi currency equity portfolio (sent to you in early June) was down last month.

JI European Equity Mutual Funds  Euro  – 13%

Suntec Singapore Real Estate Reit    Spr$  -1.3

Ishares Maci Latin America  USD               -14%

Jyske Bank, Copenhagen    DKK                – 16%

KGHM Polska Miedz    PLN                       –   9%

Brookfield Renewable Power CAD          –    2%

Unicredit Euro                                             –   9%

Axel Springer AG   Euro                           –   11%

Sky Deutschland AG    Euro                   –     8%

Silver Wheaton Corporation US$         –      1%

When you see everything in a diversified portfolio drop in this way… the markets are getting oversold. Good value is created.

The US downgrade will have negative global but not everywhere!  Some places will profit.  This means that uncertainty is creating a sell off not supported by fundamentals.

Everything in Europe of course has been hit due to the European debt crisis.  The shares in the Polish mining concern KGHM Polska Miedz especially offers opportunity. Good European banks also offer potential.  The German shares especially offer potential when they are down.

The Silver Wheaton shares suggest that smart investors loaded up on the precious metal in anticipation of the downgrade and ensuing panic.  Now these investors are taking profit.

This may be a good time to pick up good value Latin and European equities and to sell metals on peaks.

Plus, surprisingly the downgrade seems to have caused the greenback to strengthen.  The chart of the dollar to the Brazil real gives an example which shows the dollar falling, falling, falling and suddenly spiking back.

Panic will normally send the thundering herd in the wrong direction.  Recent events in both the US (the debt ceiling fiasco plus the downgrade) and in Europe (the added Italian risk) have created so much uncertainty that investors do not know what to do.

Jumping back into the dollar is similar to horses running back into a burning barn.

Watch for panic markets and invest in the opposite direction!

There are five ways to combat the destructive forces of the downgrade that will raise havoc with your purchasing power.

Multi Currency Investing through US brokers and bankers abroad is just one of the five. The others include commodities, real estate,  living in lower cost zones and having your own micro business for extra earnings, freedom, fulfillment and fun.
