Time for yet another English lesson for you little JR.
You asked - Do you still find it hard to understand why a strong currency is touted as so positive?

But what I said was (as you so helpfully pointed out) I find it hard to understand why a strong currency is touted as such a positive thing and a weak currency as such a negative thing when both can have important benefits.

You see JR and means in conjunction with. It means take the sentence as a whole. So therefore the sentence doesn't mean I am saying a strong dollar has no benefits. It doesn't mean I am saying to have a weak dollar is more important. There are "horses for courses."
Your command of the English language is only exceeded by your powers of rationality.
