Traders are warning of a dramatic change in dollar selling. They fear central banks from the Middle East may force their Asian rivals to more aggressively drive the dollar down.

Too Many Dollars

In 10 months, the Dollar Index has lost 14% because the world keeps accumulating dollars it doesn’t want and sells them. Asian central banks are key.

Many Asian central banks have been forced into waging wars to keep their currencies from appreciating because of the influx of investors to emerging markets. They sell waves of their own currencies into the market in an attempt to keep exports competitive.

In return they often receive dollars. But with the Federal Reserve printing dollars and the greenback’s value continually falling, the Asians sell those dollars in order to preserve the value of their reserves.

The Emperor Has No Clothes: Gold Is Skyrocketing In Response To The Crumbling Dollar - By Nicholas Larkin (11/4/11) PDF Print E-mail

Bloomberg

Gold rose to a record in London and New York as a weaker dollar and concerns about inflation and European debt boosted demand for the metal as an alternative investment. Silver climbed above $40 an ounce to a 31-year high.

The European Central Bank yesterday lifted interest rates for the first time in almost three years to quell inflation even as Portugal sought a bailout. The dollar slid to the lowest level since December 2009 against six major currencies. Gold, which typically moves inversely to the greenback, has climbed on fighting in Libya and Japan's earthquake and tsunami last month.

"Inflation expectations are rising," Walter de Wet, an analyst at Standard Bank Plc in London, said today by phone. European debt issues are "certainly adding support. Most of the rally the past few days has been on the back of the dollar weakening."

Immediate-delivery bullion gained as much as $15, or 1 percent, to $1,473.07 an ounce. It was at $1,472.27 at 11:50 a.m. in London. Prices are up 3 percent this week, the most since December. Gold for June delivery was 1 percent higher at $1,473.40 on the Comex in New York after reaching $1,473.60.
