Circular Logic World: Jeff Gundlach On The Fed & Dollar Strength

From an interview with ETF.com......

"We’re in a funny kind of circular logic world, where, since the Fed acknowledged a strong dollar could become a variable, that meant the odds of the Fed increasing interest rates declined. One of the reasons the dollar stopped strengthening is the consequence of the Fed mentioning its strength has been problematic, meaning there's less likelihood of them tightening. But the reason the dollar was getting so strong was that the Fed was talking about tightening.

You see the circular logic: The dollar is strong, so they can't tighten. So the dollar weakens, so they
 can't tighten. So the dollar strengthens, so they can't tighten, so the dollar weakens, so they can't tighten. And around we go. That’s where we are right now."
