Long The US dollar

"At the moment, I happen to be long US dollars because everybody is so pessimistic about it, including me. So when I see that 95 or 98% of the people are bearish on something, I stepped in and bought. I own the US dollar. I do not know how long I will own it. If it goes up, I am sure I would sell it. If it goes down, I would probably sell it and take my losses. But it is only because there are too many bears at the moment." Jim Rogers in ET Now
