Mel:
Did you ever play with silly putty when you were little? Well the dollar is a lot like it. It will bounce if dropped. It will stretch like rubber. It has no fixed size or shape. Invest in ANY fixed dollar instrument at your own risk. Inflation comes they pay off in cheap dollars. Deflation comes (and it will) and they go belly up. Heads they win tails you loose. Stay with something that will float with the dollar and watch it like a hawk.
