Morning Morsel-Dollar Higher

Gold continues lower as the dollar has a follow through day to the upside-so far. Oil is lower and is hanging around $75 a barrel. Market weakness this morning is attributed to the notion that the Fed may raise rates next year. Shocker, I thought they would be zero forever.

The dollar will tell the story this week more than ever as it showed tremendous rebound ability on Friday, a continuation of that action could stall the market rally. The market did show incredible resiliency on Friday in the face of a strong buck though.

Bernanke speaks at noon and evidently will chat about the dollar at that time. Have a great day.
