75 U.S. Dollar Index “What, me worry?” ~ Alfred E. Neuman E ven though financial markets are experienc- ing significant intervention by central banks and significant levels of investment driven by algorithms and index funds, we still think price matters. We track the reported prices and volumes in the major fixed income, equity, and commod- ities markets. In our view, charts of these markets are useful in helping to track resource allocations globally. Price matters, whether market prices or managed prices. Our survey of quarterly charts gives our subscribers a quick way to survey the price trends for the year to date.
