The U.S. Dollar is facing a cross-road where it could emerge victorious or it could collapse. The financial authorities like the International Monetary Fund (IMF), or the Federal Reserve (Fed) have done very little to reactivate the economy. The US Economic Data changes dramatically signaling a lack of balance in our monetary system, while countries like China depreciate their currency, effectively declaring economic war.

Still, most investors seek the safety of the US dollar when storm-clouds emerge, as the dollar has been the preeminent global reserve currency for most of the century. and its position as the world's preferred reserve-currency is undeniable. Yet, one of the striking changes in the global economy over the past decade and a half is the rising importance of emerging market economies, but the global financial crisis broke conventional views about the amount of reserves an economy needs to protect itself from the effects of global crises. It's up to you to get the information you need to secure your financial future, because everything that happens in the economic world, sooner or later will affect your pocket.
