1:55 am
separates a little and it is a core reason why the dollar has been stronger. if he is sitting on the fence dovish providing a more comment, i am not sure that the dollar has. the dollar value is down and it is not going to be the case with the fed hike. where is the judgment call, richard? >> you look at the exchange rate and the ecb will not be happy, if david is correct and the exchange rate starts to climb. the ecb comfortable with where the exchange rate is right now and they probably
