First up on today’s show, the U.S. dollar triumphant, but for whom? Plus, more now on the death of Saudi King Abdullah at the age of 90. With its influence in financial markets, the succession of power there being watched carefully by market participants. And with all the back and forth about President Obama’s hope to raise capital gains taxes for some Americans to provide relief for some middle class taxpayers, a White House proposal to change the 401k and IRA retirement system has gotten lost in the shuffle.
