INO Equities Stocks Indexes - US DOLLAR INDEX (NYBOTX) Price Chart and Quote Not what a property investor wants to hear but the dollar index is now suggesting deflation. The question is, will this deflationary period be short lived? The downward gold price is also suggesting deflation. I suspect it will continue for up to 6mths, then central banks will pump the system with cash to try and offset it. But its anyones guess right now. I'm sticking with CHF and Yen.
