A not uncommon question amongst investors is: 'what happens when the Dollar loses its top reserve status'? Many times, the response is to dispel the topic as outlandish. It may be exceptionally unlikely in the coming months and even years. However, over decades, the probability is actually very high. Extraordinary events can become far more probable trading opportunities or investment risks given the appropriate combination of time and progress. Whether we should consider these types of events in our decision making depends on our time frame and exposure. In today's Strategy Video, we discuss seemingly extreme events: Dollar losing its top reserve status; a Chinese financial bubble; Gold hitting $2,000 or $500; Fed and BoE rate hikes.
