The US dollar is trading at the 1.4040 area, at the time we are preparing this post on October 21, 2010. It is within less than 1% from its recent lows, and it could reverse and head higher. 1% in EUR/USD is within a one day trading volatility. Therefore, a stabilization in the price of the dollar or a move higher in its value could happen anytime between today and the next 24 hours of trading.

This can have an implication on certain stocks. The stock market sector that can be affected by a dollar move is the basic material stocks. Therefore, we may want to pray special attention to the basic material stocks as they can be vulnerable to an up move in the US dollar. The stock market is an extremely risky business. We believe that one has to always be on the lookout for risk. Below is a short list of stocks from the basic materials sector, that may need to be monitored very carefully as they can retreat and cause losses.
